"Holding still for 10 minutes? Bet you cannot!"

Elekta is a leading global supplier of advanced radiation oncology and interventional image guidance products for accurate patient positioning in radiation therapy. Carla Leuginer, Marketing Communications Manager at Medical Intelligence, an Elekta company, explains that patient stillness during radiation treatment allows for more conformal treatment due to more precise targeting of the tumor. For this reason, motion management systems play a significant role in successful treatment, enabling clinicians to comfortably immobilize patients during radiation therapy. Leuginer says, "Visitors to the Elekta booth will be challenged to lie still for 10 minutes, and many will be unable to do so without the use of immobilization products such as those available from Elekta."

Motion management systems on display at ESTRO

The HexaPOD(TM) evo RT system, a new display at the Elekta booth, is a robotic 6D patient-positioning platform that takes the prior HexaPOD(TM) CouchTop system to the next level. HexaPOD evo offers improved patient access and clearance, and provides sub-millimeter positioning accuracy. The integration with the iGUIDE(TM) cameras and enhanced software improves and simplifies the clinical workflow, providing true six degrees of freedom to easily align the tumor to the isocenter. The iBEAM(R) evo Couchtop is made of carbon fiber to reduce imaging artifacts. When
