Elekta to Showcase Gamma Knife Registry Software at Congress of Neurological Surgeons Annual Meeting
ATLANTA and CHICAGO
At the 2012 Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) Annual Meeting, October 6-10, at McCormick Place (Chicago, Ill.), Elekta (booth #620) will reveal compelling new innovations for Leksell Gamma Knife® that promise to enhance information management.
Leksell Gamma Knife Registry will debut as a highly valuable software solution for research, treatment optimization and the future development of evidence-based medicine. By providing efficient and consistent data management, the registry helps physicians ensure the accuracy and consistency of treatment. It also provides patient outcomes for effective long-term analysis.
Leksell Gamma Knife Registry is powered by MOSAIQ®
, Elekta's comprehensive Oncology Information System. Connectivity between Leksell Gamma Knife and MOSAIQ (in Leksell GammaPlan 10.2) ensures a better flow of patient care and saves valuable time and resources. In addition to importing patient information, users also can interface with billing systems, import appointment scheduling, import lab results and export lab orders.
In addition, Elekta will highlight characteristics of Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™
that separate the system from other radiosurgery solutions. These include its dedication to intracranial cases, complete solution integration, industry-leading accuracy, “shrink-wrap” dose conformity and extensive proven clinical efficacy. Demonstrations of the system will emphasize that Perfexion is designed to minimize the risk of human error and radiation toxicity, while optimizing accuracy and dose conformance.
“Collecting, storing and analyzing clinical data are increasingly critical in refining treatments based on outcomes,” says Jay Hoey, Executive Vice President, Elekta North America. “Leksell Gamma Knife Registry can serve as the foundation for the clinic’s development of evidence-based, personalized medicine protocols that will benefit patients.”
