Unleash the full potential of interventional radiotherapy with
Elekta Studio, the image guided radiation therapy (IGRT) space
that revolves around your patient - enabling radiation oncologists
to image, plan, adapt and treat patients in a single, dedicated
Elekta Studio has been designed to innovate and improve the
experience of patients receiving image guided radiation therapy
treatment. It allows for precise, image-guided brachytherapy
treatment improving radiation dose distribution whilst maintaining
an acceptable dose to organs at risk (OARs) as well as fast,
adaptive treatment planning.
Brachytherapy treatment is a form of radiotherapy that can be
used for a range of cancer treatments. Brachytherapy is sometimes
known as 'internal radiation therapy'.
Brachytherapy makes it possible for the radiation oncologist to
accurately deliver higher doses of radiation to more specific
areas of the body in comparison to conventional forms of radiation
therapy (external beam radiation), effectively targeting cancer
cells whilst minimizing potential damage to healthy cells.
Interventional radiology cancer treatment involves minimally
invasive surgical procedures through small incisions in the body
based on medical imaging. The imaging equipment typically used
includes fluoroscopy, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed
tomography (CT), and ultrasound.
As a less invasive alternative to traditional surgery,
interventional radiology can in many circumstances reduce cost as
well as patient recovery time, pain and risk.
A fully connected image-guided adaptive brachytherapy suite, Elekta
Studio is the complete solution for contemporary radiation
It provides the images needed for every step of the workflow, from
insertion and planning to verification and treatment, streamlining QA
procedures and planning for your treatment team.
A comprehensive 3D image-guided brachytherapy solution
Elekta CT/ magnetic resonance (MR) applicators provide
artifact-free images in CT and MR - even in the case of image fusion.
High-definition visibility in CT images of applicators, needles and
specialized markers provides swift and accurate reconstruction.
ImagingRing is a solution to the image-guided brachytherapy
workflow in Elekta Studio, enabling almost instant image acquisition
whenever needed—for the initial treatment plan, for adaptive planning,
or before treatment delivery.
High-quality DICOM images are sent directly to Oncentra Brachy for
treatment planning. Here, the images can be used alone for planning or
registered with the CT or MRI images acquired before the treatment or
previous fractions in the treatment planning process.
Once approved, the plan is sent to the Flexitron afterloader for
treatment delivery and stored in MOSAIQ.
ImagingRing provides 2D and 3D imaging capability for afterloader
quality assurance and applicator commissioning.
*Elekta Studio is comprised of multiple medical devices, some of which may not yet be available in all markets. Confirm availability with your local Elekta representative.

Complete brachytherapy workflow
Manage complex motion without implanted markers.
It is very valuable to have a complete and
optimal solution for image-guided brachytherapy immediately in the
intervention room, ready to operate at any time. Moreover, the entire
treatment workflow is accelerated by having all necessary equipment in a
single room - making therapeutically potent, targeted brachytherapy an
even more practical treatment option
