Frequently, Elekta is asked about the proper way to cite the use our products in the professional literature, in professional meeting posters or in oral presentations. Because Elekta has grown as an entity both organically and by acquisition of leading industry corporations and their products, there has been considerable confusion about the proper citation language. The following guidance should be helpful in describing how such attributions should be made, and conforms directly with guidance from The AMA Manual of Style, 10th Edition.1

In general, Elekta products used for research should be listed in the Methods and Materials sections of publications and presentations. Products used should generally be cited as follows: Product Name, Version [Year Used], Elekta AB, Stockholm, Sweden.

Examples of the proper citation format for the most recent versions of Elekta products are listed below, and are current as of February, 2014:
 

Accessories


Brachytherapy Systems


Computer Programs


Neuroscience Systems

Office Information System / EMR


Oncology Systems

A comprehensive listing of Elekta products and product names, current as of April, 2013, follows below. Please note that the usual “®” and ”™” monikers are not used with the names in this listing in order to comply with the guidance from The AMA Manual of Style, which specifically states that a trademark (e.g., ®, TM or SM) should not be used in scientific journal articles or references, but the initial letter of a trademarked word should be capitalized.
