Elekta AB (Stockholm, Sweden) showcased its innovative interventional radiotherapy solutions at Arab Health 2021, including personalized radiotherapy solutions for cancer care and brain disorders that are tailored to target the tumor and protect the patient.

At this year’s Arab Health, Elekta showcased its new Elekta Studio with ImagingRing, an advanced interventional CT system that revolves around the patient and enables clinicians to conduct the entire brachytherapy workflow - including applicator / needle insertion, imaging, planning and treatment delivery - without moving the patient from room to room. Elekta Studio was designed to radically simplify the 3D image-guided adaptive brachytherapy workflow and increase patient comfort.

The ImagingRing is mobile, so it can be transported throughout the hospital to any desired location. A conventional CT, whether stationary or mobile, cannot offer real-time imaging nor the access to the patient as the ImagingRing does with its sleek design. Its slim line design makes it convenient to store, while its battery-powered motor enables the device to be moved easily around the treatment room and between rooms, if required. It even fits in a standard hospital elevator.

With the ImagingRing, no time has to be spent moving the patient from the treatment table to the CT and back, so applicator displacement is avoided, increasing treatment accuracy and patient comfort. In addition, since the ImagingRing is at the heart of the Elekta Studio, system transport and waiting times for an imaging slot - such as for a traditional CT scan - are eliminated, thus accelerating the workflow.

Fully mobile and with a compact, open design, ImagingRing ensures the best possible patient experience. The spacious ImagingRing design minimizes patient anxiety and is suitable for all treatment positions. Doctors have complete access to patients during treatment, and the flexible tilting gantry allows them to be scanned easily in the correct position.
