Versa HD offers beam shaping and tumor targeting, and can deliver radiation doses three times faster than previous Elekta linear accelerators, according to the vendor. Integrated with Elekta' Agility 160-leaf multileaf collimator, Versa HD can provide high-definition, high-speed beam shaping over a 40 x 40-cm field, the company said. A new high dose-rate mode also is included.
