  • The upgrade includes automated breath-hold gating for breast and lung radiotherapy, called Active Breathing Coordinator. The feature works with Elekta's Response gating algorithm, helping patients pause their breathing at a particular tidal volume, according to Elekta.

    Automated breath-hold gating allows clinicians to reduce tumor margins and perform treatments such as stereotactic body radiation therapy with image-guided radiation therapy in a standard treatment time slot, Elekta said.
