Elekta this week is introducing the new Elekta Axesse, a 6D robotic image guided radiosurgery system optimized for treatment of the spine. The new Elekta Axesse system uses stereotactic technology and true three-dimensional (3D) imaging to ensure fast, efficient and accurate treatment for the patient. Elekta is showcasing this new system and its complete portfolio of stereotactic systems at the annual meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) that started Saturday at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, Calif.
In addition, Elekta will feature Leksell Gamma Knife for treating indications of the brain, a dedicated system for non-invasive radiosurgery.
Also, Elekta will exhibit several other complementary products for neurosurgery, including:
- Leksell Stereotactic System, a coordinate frame, uses the company’s 3D reference and positioning system used for functional and stereotactic neurosurgery;
- Elekta Neuromag, an advanced magnetoencephalography (MEG) system, is a combined MEG/EEG device. Using MEG, it is possible to determine the function of different parts of the brain for each specific patient in the current stage of his or her development.
