Elekta Demonstrates Comprehensive Range of Cancer Management Solutions at 2012 Arab Health Congress and Exhibition

An estimated 72,000 healthcare professionals gathered at the Dubai World Trade Centre Jan. 23-26 for the 2012 Arab Health Congress and Exhibition. The meeting also provided the framework for the 2nd Multi-Disciplinary Approach to Cancer Therapy Conference.


During the exhibition, Elekta demonstrated advanced solutions ranging from conventional radiation therapy with Elekta Compact™* to stereotactic neurosurgery with Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™, products that provide clinicians with the tools to save and improve the lives of individuals with cancer. In addition, for the first time at Arab Health, Elekta presented advanced brachytherapy solutions.


The theme of the Elekta exhibit was “Experience the Elekta Difference,” which emphasizes the company’s commitment to increasing the user’s clinical confidence by simplifying the variables in treatment planning, patient setup, verification and delivery.


“Elekta was honored to attend Arab Health once again as a Gold Sponsor for the 2nd Multi-Disciplinary Approach to Cancer Therapy Conference,” says Nabil Elias Romanos, Elekta’s Vice President, Eastern Europe and Middle East. “We enjoyed heavy booth traffic and were gratified by the interest in our entire product portfolio, including our brachytherapy solutions. Many of the discussions with hospital administrators and clinicians revolved around key partnerships in the regions, supported by education, training and clinical collaboration.”


In 2012, Elekta will increase its presence in the region, after having already expanded its Dubai office to better serve customers and partners.
