Elekta VMAT, Elekta’s advanced arc therapy technique, establishes new standards for radiation therapy treatment speed and dose reduction to the patient. With Elekta VMAT, single or multiple radiation beams sweep in uninterrupted arc(s) around the patient, dramatically speeding treatment delivery. Clinicians can use Elekta VMAT with complete or partial arc(s) to reduce treatment times from the 8-12 minutes required for conventional radiation therapy to as few as two minutes.
3D volume imaging technology integrated into Elekta treatment systems increases the precision of Elekta VMAT. This enables physicians to visualize the tumor target at the time of treatment and to guide therapy that both increase the radiation dose to the target and reduce exposure to surrounding healthy tissues.
Most importantly, compared to other commercial arc therapy techniques, Elekta VMAT provides the oncologist with the freedom to choose how the optimal dose will be delivered. This is achieved through the unique flexibility of Elekta treatment systems to simultaneously apply digital control to all treatment parameters, allowing doctors to manipulate the radiation dose and the imaging dose.
