Elekta Unity allows you to see more from Radiation Therapy then you could ever see before. With unparalleled visualization and precision, we have pushed the boundaries of what is possible. But this is just the start.
Imagine if you could...
Market-leading diagnostic quality imaging with powerful algorithms and technology to quantify movement and correct for it automatically, as it happens.
*Elekta Unity with Comprehensive Motion Management (CMM) has CE mark and U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance. Not available in all markets.
We’re pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, by giving clinicians the power to truly see and treat patients like never before. Comprehensive Motion Management (CMM) will deliver the next stage of our Elekta Unity vision, providing you with:
Multiple motion management strategies will give you the freedom to choose the approach best suited for your patient, to deliver true personalization of treatment
Designed to give you more time delivering care to your patients, CMM is seamlessly integrated into the existing Unity workflow. No additional set-up time for motion management and the workflow is intuitive and user-friendly.
Review, adapt and approve plans from anywhere
Review, adapt and approve stereotactic MR-guided online adaptive radiation therapy plans from anywhere, with remote online access. Unity Remote provides remote access to the Unity console allowing clinicians to review and approve online adapted plans from any device, anywhere—enabling the clinician to see the online treatment planning system as though they were at the console.
Elekta Unity has the potential to improve clinical outcomes. What if you could see what you could never see before?
Treat in fewer fractions while maintaining existing outcomes
Dynamic real-time adaptation provides the ability to tailor each MRI guided radiation therapy session based on changes in the shape, size and position of the tumor and surrounding anatomy.
The treatment dose can be focused on the tumor at every moment, enabling accurate dose delivery based on position and movement, leading to increased protection of healthy tissue.
Combining best-in-class, diagnostic quality MRI with a Linear Accelerator we have pushed the boundaries of what is possible.
“My ambition for the future is to be able to cure cancer in just two days.”

Providing patients with a non-invasive treatment option
Elekta Unity will be the only MR-Linac that uses precision multi-planar imaging to continuously monitor, track and display the 3D target position in real-time–so all movement is captured regardless of the direction it happens.
This personalized approach to cancer treatment is non-invasive and fiducial free, may reduce the need for surgery and has the potential to improve follow-on care and reduce costs.
Advanced organs-at-risk sparing
Elekta Unity combines accurate, diagnostic quality MRI with precise radiation delivery for every treatment session - a unique combination which provides the advanced ability to calculate, tailor and direct doses based on changes in the shape, size and position of the tumor and surrounding anatomy.
Elekta Unity will be one of the most advanced solutions available, giving you the confidence to correct for motion and potentially reduce margins while minimizing toxicity and side effects.
Dose delivery is monitored at every moment with online MR motion monitoring, leading to increased protection of healthy tissue and providing opportunities for concentrated timelines, better outcomes and fewer side effects.
Safe dose escalation
Elekta Unity combines accurate, diagnostic quality MRI with precise radiation delivery - a unique combination which provides superior soft tissue visualization of the relationship between the tumor and surrounding anatomy allowing you to confidently escalate daily dose.
The escalated treatment dose is focused on the tumor at every moment, leading to increased protection of healthy tissue and providing opportunities for better outcomes and fewer side effects.
Elekta Unity gives you unparalleled levels of insight, control and concentrated timelines, enabling opportunities for better outcomes and fewer side effects.
Providing more patients with the option for radiation therapy
A unique design that maximizes eligibility for radiation therapy, Elekta Unity can refine treatment for prevalent cancers and enable treatment for hard-to-treat cancers.
This provides opportunities for avoidance or delay in systemic therapies and surgery, increased opportunity for re-irradiation leading to improved quality of life for more patients.
The difference that Elekta Unity brings is clear: it allows you to see what you could never see before.
Pushing the boundaries
The Elekta Unity MR-Linac is a ground-breaking system with an extensive and exciting innovation path in front of it, fueled by the Elekta MR-Linac Consortium, where hundreds of the world’s leading radiation oncologists come together to shape treatment standards of care, product development and workflows. Unity users play an important role in the development of both evidence and new treatment paradigms as an active part of this global community.
Elekta has developed technologies and treatment pathways that have the potential to revolutionize cancer treatment. We invite you to see the difference and be part of this future.
Our investment in product development within the Comprehensive Motion Management environment will move us closer to the delivery of new forms of adaptive radiotherapy, such as MLC tracking.
