Leksell Gamma Knife Lightning

A simple solution for accelerated radiosurgery

The next-generation treatment optimizer

Meeting the increased demand for automated and personalized intracranial SRS

Lightning can be used to do most of the heavy-lifting, with the final ‘sculpting’ and optimization of the dose distribution being hand-crafted by the medical physicist, neurosurgeon or radiation oncologist.

Accelerated treatment

Leksell Gamma Knife Lightning facilitates the reduction of treatment delivery times

The optimizer enables reduced BOT while maintaining or even enhancing the plan quality compared to forward plans with automated shot optimization.
