Equipment delivered to Federal State Self-Governing Facility Treatment and Rehabilitation Centre

September 2015 An Elekta Infinity robot-assisted radiotherapy system, along with additional fittings, has been delivered to the Russian Federation Ministry of Health Treatment and Rehabilitation Centre.

The Elekta Infinity uses external beam radiotherapy to treat oncological diseases. A linear accelerator is used as the source of radiation; this generates photon or electron beams, which are used to treat the patient directly with radiation.

The delivery of the Elekta Infinity system was carried out by PETRusCO. The equipment is currently being installed at the Centre. PETRusCO will also be carrying out the commissioning of the equipment and will organise staff training as part of the project. The work will be completed in October 2015.
