The Elekta Synergy is a state-of-the-art, fully digital radiation delivery system that integrates Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), which allows your clinicians to see your tumor at the very moment of treatment. This results in more accurate targeting of the tumor. As a result your treatment team can aggressively treat your tumor, while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue.
The Elekta Synergy can be used for different treatment approaches, including 3D-Conformal Radiation Therapy, Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) and Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT). This gives your Radiation Oncologist the opportunity to tailor your treatment and choose the method that is best for your particular case.
The Synergy provides a precisely sculpted 3D radiation dose as it rotates 360º around you. It can continuously monitor the movement of your tumor as you breathe (“respiratory gating”) and only deliver radiation when the tumor is in exactly the right place. This allows for a higher, more effective dosage amount without additional risk of side effects, including damage to normal, surrounding tissues.
