ScandiNova Pulse Modulator M100-i

To be able to run this kind of radiation therapy system you need pulsed power with high reliability and performance in a compact unit. ScandiNova’s pulse modulator M-100-i was customized to serve this completely new system – which meant a shift from PFN to solid-state, making it modified for magnetic field, fully rotatable, compact, lightweight and easily accessible for installation and maintenance.

The final product is a radiation therapy system with exceptional reliability. In 2018, Elekta finally released the product at Estro, got it CE-approved and cleared by the FDA. We can’t wait to see what the next chapter of Elekta radiation therapy will contain.
