Johns Hopkins to Add Elekta Synergy S to Cancer Treatment Lineup

August 17, 2007 - The Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins Medicine, in MD, has placed an order to add an Elekta Synergy S system to its Leksell Gamma Knife capability, aiming to fight cancer with both intracranial and extracranial resources for whole-body cancer treatment.

Elekta Synergy S integrates high-resolution beam shaping, precise target localization, organ motion control and 3D Imaging into one package, reportedly taking stereotactic radiosurgery and radiotherapy to a new level. The system is an image-guided robotic linear accelerator that combines integrated software-driven imaging abilities with powerful high-resolution radiation delivery.

At Johns Hopkins' Kimmel Center, Elekta Synergy S will reportedly enable specialists to perform both stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic radiotherapy throughout the body, as well as stereotactic radiosurgery on cranial tumors unsuitable for Gamma Knife surgery.
