Elekta's Radiation Therapy Systems for Cancer Take Top Three Places in 2012's Best in KLAS

July 13, 2012 — Elekta swept the top three rankings in the KLAS research firm's recently released 2012 Best in KLAS Awards: Medical Equipment & Infrastructure report.

Elekta's Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion radiosurgery system and the Synergy and Infinity radiation therapy systems earned the Nos. 1, 2 and 3 rankings, respectively, out of eight possible rankings.

In the report, Perfexion scored 93.9 out of 100, and 100 percent of customers indicated they would buy again. On a 1 to 9 scale, Perfexion received an 8.7 from respondents for satisfaction with product uptime, the highest score among all vendors rated in the market segment.

Synergy scored 87.1 out of 100, and 100 percent of customers specified they would purchase again. Infinity received a score of 85.4, with 86 percent indicating they would buy again. All three Elekta solutions posted an improved rating change from last year's KLAS report: Perfexion, +1 percent; Synergy, +1 percent; and Infinity, +4 percent.

"Once again, we're honored that the KLAS respondents continue to hold Elekta products in such high regard, and that they've been able to earn even higher marks than last year," said Jay Hoey, executive vice president of Elekta North America. "We translate our customers' perceptions of these solutions as a reflection of how well they help improve and prolong patients' lives."
