Elekta introduces strategy for precision radiation medicine at ASTRO Annual Meeting
SAN ANTONIO, USA, October 19, 2018 – At the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Annual Meeting, October 21-24 in San Antonio, Elekta (EKTA-B.ST) will introduce MOSAIQ Plaza, Elekta’s suite of data-focused integrative oncology software, and highlight the company’s comprehensive strategy for precision radiation medicine. This strategy integrates Elekta’s dual commitments to enabling complex radiation therapy treatment regimens while simplifying and streamlining the delivery of care. Elekta Unity*, the company’s transformative magnetic resonance radiation therapy (MR/RT) system and MOSAIQ Plaza are the most recent evidence of Elekta’s ability to fulfill these commitments.
“We believe that clinicians and patients around the world should have access to life-changing, life-saving care,” said Richard Hausmann, President and CEO, Elekta. “Achieving this goal requires advanced radiation therapy solutions. Our focus on precision radiation medicine reflects our commitment to innovating solutions that enable personalized radiation therapy that can rapidly be adapted to changes in tumor size and shape and use intelligent data processing to streamline treatments.”
