Elekta Displays Complete Volumetric Intensity Modulated Arc Therapy Solutions at ESTRO
Date:9/12/2007

BARCELONA, Spain, Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Elekta is pleased to announce the development of a comprehensive solution for planning and performing Volumetric Intensity Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT)*. The complete offering of Elekta VMAT solutions are being featured in the Elekta booth at this year's European Society of Therapeutic Radiation Oncologists (ESTRO) meeting in Barcelona, September 8-13, 2007. Performing VMAT with Elekta enables helical- like conformality and can help reduce total treatment time even with daily use of Elekta's proven X-ray Volume Imaging system.

The Elekta solution begins with the next generation of the Desktop Pro(TM) control system, which allows any Elekta MLC-based delivery system to execute the VMAT treatment technique. The ERGO++ treatment planning system from Elekta was previously available for external small field multileaf collimators only, but will now be available for use on all Elekta delivery systems using dynamic multileaf collimation. The MOSAIQ(TM) electronic health record (EHR) system completes the system with features such as scheduling, billing, and management reporting and analysis.

Elekta VMAT provides highly conformal IMRT treatment in less time

VMAT solutions available from Elekta allow users to treat patients with an innovative technique that combines gantry rotation with dynamic multileaf collimation for highly conformal, intensity-modulated radiation therapy. The dose intensity is modulated by either a variable dose rate, a variable gantry speed or a combination of both. Yet another variation available to the user is dose delivery over a number of gantry arcs. Simultaneous dynamic control of all parameters is delivered, control point to control point.
