The two companies have signed a global commercial collaboration agreement in the field of radiation oncology.
The collaboration enables them to provide hospitals a comprehensive offering across imaging and treatment for cancer patients requiring radiation therapy, they state. “Combining GE Healthcare’s imaging solutions with Elekta’s radiation therapy solutions will result in an even more compelling offering for hospitals and ultimately their patients,” they state.
“We are driven by our hospitals and cancer centers’ preferences and their need for comprehensive solutions in effective, efficient and safe cancer care. Therefore, we’re excited about this collaboration with GE Healthcare. We have many mutual health care providers who see clear synergies and advantages with our respective, strong product portfolios. This will allow us to jointly promote solutions for each cancer center’s needs. Elekta strives to assure that hospitals and cancer centers can create seamless ecosystems that facilitate efficient end-to-end cancer care,” says Elekta CEO, Gustaf Salford.
The agreement is non-exclusive, meaning each party can continue to cooperate with other partners.
