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
