Elekta released the new Versa HD radiotherapy linear accelerator that features new cone beam shaping technology that delivers higher precision targeting than previous systems while achieving a large field-of-view.
It’s built around the company’s new Agility 160-leaf multileaf collimator, delivering much larger radiation doses and allowing for treatment of small and large targets without compromising the sharpness of the beam.
“Historically, MLC leaf speed has been a limiting factor in adopting high dose rate delivery. The leaves were often incapable of moving fast enough to provide advanced modulation with the increased dose rate,” says Elekta’s Kevin Brown, Global Vice President Scientific Research. “With Versa HD, clinicians can now take full advantage of high dose rate delivery, and provide highly exquisite conformance with much greater efficiency.”
To reduce environmental impact and operating costs, Versa HD consumes up to 30 percent less energy than other delivery systems. Versa HD also debuts with modern ergonomics, including a more patient-friendly, softer and sleeker exterior, new user controls and ambient lighting effects.
