February 10, 2012

The Department of Radiation Oncology recently installed the Elekta Leksell PERFEXION Gamma Knife System, a highly precise tool that allows physicians to focus beams of radiation at a specific site in the brain to repair an abnormality or stop the growth of a tumor. With the PERFEXION system, physicians say they will shorten treatment time, treat a wider variety and range of lesions and set UC Davis Health System apart from the current area competition as it will be the only advanced Gamma Knife System in the region.
