Leksell Icon Gamma Knife

WE HAVE INSTALLED AFRICA’S 1ST LEKSELL ICON GAMMA KNIFE MACHINE AT MILPARK HOSPITAL JOHANNESBURG.
THE MOST PRECISE RADIOSURGERY DEVICE ON THE MARKET


  

Leksell Gamma Knife® Icon™ is the most precise radiosurgery device on the market, limiting radiation dose to healthy tissue. Icon is the only technology with microradiosurgery capabilities, allowing for the treatment of virtually any target in the brain with ultrahigh precision.

Icon introduces a number of new innovations, such as integrated imaging and software to continuously control dose delivery. It also makes it possible to treat patients without a minimally invasive fixation while assuring the same highest level of precision.

Addressing the growing radiosurgery market, Icon makes Gamma Knife radiosurgery more flexible and easier to use, allowing more clinics to build a cranial radiosurgery program. Read More
