GLASGOW, Scotland, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading neurosurgical device developer Elekta will feature the newest advances in neurosurgical diagnostic and treatment devices, along with clinical workflow solutions that make neurosurgery more effective and efficient at the European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS) European Congress September 2-7, 2007. More than 1,000 neurosurgeons and related medical professionals will gather at the Scottish Exhibition & Conference Centre in Glasgow for the event.
Leksell Gamma Knife(R) Perfexion(TM) highlighted
Positioned at the entrance of the exhibition hall, Elekta will feature Leksell Gamma Knife(R) Perfexion(TM), a quantum leap in stereotactic radiosurgery. The revolutionary patented design of the new Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion collimator system dramatically expands treatment reach, simplifying the process of treating multiple tumors in the same session. Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion provides better dosimetry performance than any other competitive radiosurgical system currently on the market and is estimated to increase the number of patients that can benefit from Gamma Knife surgery by up to 40 percent.
In addition, Gamma Knife(R) surgery is a radiosurgical procedure that is specifically well suited for the treatment of brain metastases.
"Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion offers brain metastasis treatment in
less time than other radiosurgical devices. Feedback from the first users
in France, the United Kingdom and the United States has been overwhelmingly
positive. Professor Jean Regis, La Timone Hospital in Marseilles has
published that it is possible to treat four brain metastases eccentrically
located (frontal anterior, far lateral and posterior fossa) in less than
two hours," says Rolf Kjellstrom, Vice President of Sales and Mark
