Siemens to team with Elekta on MLCs
Elekta AB and Siemens Medical Solutions are collaborating to develop, market and sell high resolution add-on multileaf collimators (MLCs).

 The agreement includes add-on MLCs for use with Elekta's digital accelerators -- the SL, SLi, Precise Treatment System and Elekta Synergy platform. The products will be sold by Elekta worldwide under the brand names MRC, microMLC and MRC ModuLeaf. Elekta will handle installation and service of the products that it sells.

 The Elekta-Siemens pact also covers R&D development for add-on MLCs.
