Karolinska University Hospital has acquired Elekta’s latest generation intracranial stereotactic radiosurgery system, Leksell Gamma Knife Icon.

Gamma Knife Icon is the sixth generation of the company’s Leksell Gamma Knife system, a technology that has been in use worldwide and continually evolving since the 1980s. With stereotactic imaging, online Adaptive DoseControl™, ultra-precise dose delivery and the availability of frameless treatments, Icon is capable of treating virtually any target in the brain, regardless of type, location or volume.

Tomas Puusepp, Elekta’s President and CEO, says: “We are happy that Karolinska University Hospital has chosen the most advanced Leksell Gamma Knife radiosurgery system when they open the doors to their new hospital, New Karolinska Solna. We hope to continue working with Karolinska to provide them with the best solutions available as they strive to improve patient care.”
