Elekta reports treatment milestone in Italy

Radiation oncology firm Elekta has announced the Centro Nazionale di Adroterapia Oncologica (CNAO Foundation) in Pavia, Italy, is the first center to use its Mosaiq oncology information system to guide a cancer patient's carbon ion therapy.

CNAO is now nearing completion of its National Center of Oncological Hadrontherapy, which will be running double shifts after an initial start-up phase, Elekta said. Each month, 150 to 200 patients are expected to receive proton therapy and carbon ion therapy, according to the vendor.
