What is Elekta Xoft?

Elekta Xoft may not be available in all markets..

It is supported by a growing body of evidence for the treatment of early-stage breast cancer, non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), gynecological cancers and brain cancers.

Emerging applications include prostate, pancreatic, and colorectal. Our commitment to this innovative technology is driven by the valuable benefits it offers to physicians, facilities, and patients.

What is Electronic Brachytherapy (eBx)?

The term brachytherapy means "near therapy," or bringing the source of radiation close to the tissue that is targeted. The goal is to direct the radiation dose to the size and shape of the cancerous area, sparing healthy tissue and organs.

Electronic Brachytherapy (eBx) is designed to simplify the radiation therapy process and make it more accessible to patients who are suitable candidates for treatment. By providing select cancer patients with a concentrated dose of eBx directly to the tumor site, our high dose, low energy technology offers an accelerated course of treatment as compared to traditional radiation therapy. Our commitment to this innovative technology is driven by the valuable benefits it offers to you and your family.

Breast eBx


Breast IORT is an advanced, patient-friendly radiation treatment option offering patients a simplified alternative to traditional six-week radiation therapy for early-stage breast cancer treatment. With IORT, a complete, concentrated dose of radiation is delivered in one treatment during surgery


Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation (APBI) is another form of electronic brachytherapy that delivers radiation directly to the tumor bed, the part of the breast at highest risk for recurrence. Similar to conventional external radiation treatment, APBI is used as follow-up treatment to surgery over the course of several days.
