Leksell Stereotactic System® is an integrated system for the localisation and treatment of targets deep within the brain, using minimal intervention. The founding technology of Elekta represents our traditional neurosurgical focus and continuously sets new standards.
GAMMA KNIFE SURGERY – FOR TREATING VASCULAR MALFORMATIONS
The origin of single, high-dose radiosurgery using multiple sources for treating vascular malformations, benign tumours, metastases and other malignant tumors, as well as functional disorders. To date over 300,000 patients around the world have undergone Gamma Knife surgery, which can normally be performed in a day, making it the patients preferred choice where available.
FUNCTIONAL MAPPING - NERVE CELL ACTIVITY
Elekta Neuromag® magnetoencephalograph, is the most sophisticated diagnostic system for the registration and localisation of nerve cell activity. By measuring weak magnetic fields generated by the brain this diagnostic tool increases the ability to understand functional disorders resulting in improved treatment.
PRECISION RADIATION THERAPY
Elekta supplies the world's only fully digitally controlled linear accelerators. In addition, the Elekta Precise Treatment System™ offers three photon energies, an optional integrated MLC and the largest patient clearance - offering true flexibility in treatment positioning.
The Elekta Precise Treatment System is the foundation of the Elekta oncology portfolio and supports the complete radiation oncology therapy process for both traditional and advanced non-IGRT radiation therapy techniques.
IMAGE GUIDED RADIATION THERAPY
Elekta Synergy® was the first digitally controlled linear accelerator optimised for Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) enabling the acquisition of a 3D volume image at the time of treatment with the patient in the treatment position.
The fully integrated imaging solution provides unmatched clinical confidence for Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) together with the address of the two most significant problems with advanced radiation therapy techniques – the motion and deformation of internal organs and uncertainties in patient set-up.
STEREOTACTIC RADIATION THERAPY
Elekta has combined its knowledge of high-precision radiation, stereotaxy and image guided techniques. Technology, drawn from both the neuroscience and oncology portfolios, resulted in the unique functionality of Elekta Axesse™. Further development in this area promises to enable increased dose escalation and new fractionation modalities.
DATA MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Following the acquisition of IMPAC Medical Systems Inc. in April 2005, The Elekta Group is the world's largest supplier of oncology software. IMPAC Medical Systems, Inc., an Elekta company, provides healthcare information technology solutions that streamline clinical and business operations across the spectrum of cancer care.
IMPAC's open integration to multiple healthcare data and imaging systems offers oncology-specific patient charting and practice management, as well as best-of-breed systems for anatomic pathology, clinical laboratory and cancer registry.
COST-EFFECTIVE AND KINDER FOR THE PATIENT
Elekta's systems and solutions are used at over 3,000 hospitals around the world to treat cancer and manage clinical operations as well as diagnostic and treat brain disorders.
By developing clinical solutions through close collaborative relationships with clinical partners in research and advanced product development, Elekta is addressing the healthcare system's need for reduced hospitalisation costs and also patients' wish for less-traumatic treatment options.
All of Elekta's solutions employ non-invasive or minimally invasive techniques and therefore both maximise clinical and cost-effectiveness whilst minimising trauma for the patient.
ELEKTA LIFECYCLE SERVICES
At Elekta, we are committed to exceeding customer expectations on a daily basis. With Elekta Lifecycle Services, our goal is to ensure peak performance and uptime throughout the life of Elekta treatment systems.
