“Virtually all of our Leksell Gamma Knife sites also have access to linacs for radiosurgery,” says
Further documenting the superior dosimetric performance of Perfexion, a recent multicenter study1 showed that the system offers dramatically lower radiation dose to normal brain – in the treatment of multiple metastases – than other systems, such as Varian’s TrueBeam™ flattening filter-free linear accelerator with a 2.5 mm MLC. Patients with multiple metastases, the report said, stand to receive as much as a 74 percent lower radiation dose to normal brain tissues if the lesions are treated with Perfexion versus contemporary linear accelerator-based stereotactic (SRS) systems.
KLAS surveys include opinions of thousands of health care professionals The KLAS awards are based on data from customer surveys of hospital and clinic executives, administrators, physicians, nurses and other directors and managers interacting with health care equipment and infrastructure solutions.
According to KLAS, Best in KLAS designations go to solutions that have excelled in their respective market segments, that show the vendor’s leadership in working with customers to resolve issues and match expectations to reality, and that have the broadest operational and clinical impact to health care organizations.
The Best in KLAS designation recognizes vendors for their outstanding efforts to help healthcare professionals deliver better patient care. This award is reserved for those that lead the imaging equipment segments with the broadest operational and clinical impact on healthcare organizations.
“This is a tremendous achievement because each of the top performers earned this recognition through the voice of their provider customers,” says
