United Radiation Oncology (URO) has ordered a Synergy radiation treatment system from Elekta AB.

Synergy is designed to obtain images of patients just before treatment, so physicians and surgeons can visualize tumors at the point of treatment more precisely and target tumors with radiation beams.

Elekta Synergy offers 4D Adaptive Radiotherapy, an image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) treatment approach that relies on images of anatomy and disease to guide radiation delivery precisely to the tumor while sparing healthy tissues.

Elekta is currently taking orders and installing Elekta Synergy linear accelerators at leading cancer clinics both in the United States and Europe.
