On the 6th of June 2018, the Queen Square Radiosurgery Supra Centre for the South of England welcomed guests to an event as we plan to install the Leksell Gamma Knife Icon – the latest precision radiosurgery platform from Elekta. Presentations were provided by amongst others by Mr Neil Kitchen, Clinical Lead and Ian Paddick, Chief Physicist.

This summer, we plan to install the Leksell Gamma Knife Icon – the latest precision radiosurgery platform from Elekta.

Demand for stereotactic intracranial radiosurgery is increasing because of:

  • Rise in cases among ageing populations
  • Higher quality of life expectations
  • Trend toward more personalised treatments

Simply put, consultants and their patients expect more and the Icon is the latest generation Gamma Knife system, designed to meet these requirements.The Icon enables the option to perform single or fractionated, frame-based or frameless treatments, allowing for more individualised delivery – without sacrificing precision or accuracy.
