Auckland Radiation Oncology Centre in Auckland, New Zealand, has installed radiotherapy technology from oncology technology provider Elekta, the Elekta VMAT system.

According to the Stockholm-based company, the center has treated its first patient with the system, a prostate cancer patient using a 100-second arc of radiation, totaling 20 minutes of treatment time from pretreatment imaging to post-treatment delivery.

The center—which treats approximately 20 prostate cancer patients daily—has begun treating eight additional patients with the system and two more also are slated to begin treatment, said Elekta.
