DESCRIPTION

Cost-effective and versatile radiation treatment system.

As a cost-effective entry point into radiation therapy or as an additional treatment system, Elekta Compact delivers maximum value, while providing a wide range of treatment techniques. With its modular design, Elekta Compact is state-of-the-art treatment system on a platform designed to accept new features and functions as the departments clinical needs grow. Advanced options for Elekta Compact will include an integrated multileaf collimator (MLCi), real-time megavoltage portal imaging, as well as an external small-field dynamic multileaf collimator (DMLC). Elekta Compact is compatible with a range of accessories, MOSAIQ portfolio software options and treatment planning systems. Elekta Compact shares critical specifications with the most advanced Elekta delivery systems, such as a large 45 cm clearance to isocenter and a low isocenter height, enabling unrestricted access for a wide range of gantry positions. These key features support easy implementation of routine breast and head-and-neck treatments, in addition to conformal techniqueswith available accessory mounts, beam-shaping accessories and custom or standard blocking trays.

Elekta Compact™ Linear Accelerator
Here's a look at the latest ultra-compact linear accelerator from Stockholm-based Elekta AB: Elekta Compact was purposefully designed with a single low-energy photon beam and a small footprint specifically, so it is ideally positioned for use in a small treatment room and in specialized markets. Its efficient design makes it more accessible to a wider range of health care providers who want to give their patients the optimal care in radiation therapy... In rooms that previously contained a Cobalt unit, or a treatment room with limited space, Elekta Compact may be an appropriate first step. "For former Cobalt users who want a simple linear accelerator as a 'workhorse' in providing cancer treatment with fewer complications, Elekta Compact can fill a treatment room that might otherwise lay empty," says Olof Sanden, Executive Vice President Region Europe at Elekta. Elekta Compact was designed and positioned to give all customers access to this exceptional product. "We haven't forgotten that there's a need for appropriate products to meet all customers' needs," says Russ Cox, Manager of Oncology Product Management and Senior Product Manager of Precision Radiation Therapy Systems at Elekta. "For countries needing to rapidly increase treatment capacity and those countries where Cobalt replacements are becoming more common, this is an ideal machine." Elekta Compact users will have access to electronic treatment records and sophisticated information management systems to help streamline workflow... Elekta Compact has various upgrade paths to a higher-value product. "A mini multi-leaf collimator from Elekta can be mounted along with associated small field cones for stereotactic radiotherapy and radiosurgery," explains Cox. In addition, the user can start with an Elekta Precise standard tabletop and upgrade to all forms of carbon fiber tabletops based on the customer's individual clinical needs.
