Kuopio University Hospital to Use Elekta AB's Elekta Infinity Treatment Systems

Wednesday, 6 Mar 2013 02:00am EST 

Elekta AB announced that in the spring of 2013, Kuopio University Hospital (KUH, Kuopio, Finland) will begin treating patients with its two new Elekta Infinity treatment systems equipped with the Agility 160-leaf multileaf collimator (MLC). The two Elekta therapy systems will replace two older linear accelerators from Varian Medical Systems. In combination with Agility, the Infinity systems - specifically designed to deliver fast Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) - will enable faster treatments tailored to the profile of the tumor. Agility uses 160 high-speed, five-millimeter wide beam-shaping leaves to accurately conform the radiation field to the lesion’s shape, and moves the leaves at twice the speed of other MLCs. KUH also has purchased Elekta’s Oncentra VMAT and Monaco treatment planning systems. In 2015, KUH will relocate its radiation therapy systems to a new six-bunker radiotherapy department.
