One of the most remarkable features of the Elekta Versa HD is its ability to deliver highly focused radiation beams using the cones attachment (5mm-15mm). This innovative technique allows radiation oncologists to target benign tumours with pinpoint accuracy, rivalling the precision of the renowned Gamma Knife. However, the Elekta Versa HD takes it a step further by offering high-definition stereotactic radiosurgery (HD-SRS), enabling:

•Highly accurate treatment delivery 

•Faster treatment time

•Reduced patient discomfort 

For patients with malignant brain tumours, the Elekta Versa HD offers a wide array of treatment options. Its advanced beam shaping and modulation capabilities, coupled with state-of-the-art imaging formats, allow for personalized treatment plans that can effectively target tumours while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. This translates to improved outcomes and quality of life for patients, as they can undergo treatment with greater confidence and fewer side effects.

The Elekta Versa HD’s versatility extends beyond its ability to treat various types of brain tumours. It supports a range of modulation techniques, including intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). These techniques enable radiation oncologists to sculpt the radiation dose to conform precisely to the shape and size of the tumour, ensuring optimal coverage while sparing critical structures. These techniques allow for the radiation dose to conform closely to the three-dimensional shape of the tumour, maximizing the dose to the tumour while minimizing exposure to healthy tissues. 

By utilizing advanced imaging formats such as 4D imaging and cone-beam CT, the system delivers radiation with pinpoint accuracy.

Elekta Versa HD seamlessly integrates with advanced imaging modalities such as cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). These imaging capabilities allow for real-time monitoring and adjustment of the patient’s position, ensuring that the radiation is delivered accurately throughout the treatment session. This state-of-the-art radiation therapy system is transforming how physicians target and treat brain tumours, combining unparalleled precision with advanced technology to deliver life-changing outcomes for patients representing a quantum leap and treatment paradigms. Its precision, versatility, and patient-centric approach have set a new standard in radiation oncology.
