This allows patients with larger brain tumors and lesions close to critical brain structures to be treated with Gamma Knife accuracy and confidence.Leksell Gamma Knife Icon received 510(k) approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in August 2015 and CE marking in June 2015. It has also been cleared by the MFDS for clinical use in The Republic of Korea.The total number of cancer patients in Japan is estimated at about 980,000 a year, approximately 100,000 (10 percent) of whom will develop metastatic brain tumors. Only about 10,000 of these patients receive Gamma Knife treatment each year. Now, with Leksell Gamma Knife Icon, the number of patients who can receive stereotactic radiosurgery to the affected area would increase considerably.Unique to Icon is the integrated stereotactic cone-beam CT (CBCT) imaging technology that can check the patient’s position against the treatment plan and automatically recalculate the plan to correct for movement, thus ensuring the highest precision. During treatment, Icon’s novel HD motion management system manages patient movement by using infrared marker tracking to monitor cranial position.For more information: www.elekta.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 Mevion and C-RAD Release Integration for Improved Proton Therapy Treatment Quality Mevion Medical Systems and C-RAD announced the integration between the C-RAD Catalyst PT and the Mevion S250i proton… read more News | Radiation Therapy | June 03, 2016 Elekta’s Leksell Gamma Knife Icon Cleared for Use in Japan and United States Patients and clinics to benefit from next-generation stereotactic radiosurgery system News | Radiation Therapy | August 16, 2019 Drug Accelerates Blood System’s Recovery After Radiation, Chemotherapy A drug developed by UCLA physician-scientists and chemists speeds up the regeneration of mouse and human blood stem… read more The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.
