Elekta at ESTRO 2024
Elekta has acquired the patent portfolio of Philips Healthcare's Pinnacle Treatment Planning System (TPS) in an effort to enhance its radiation therapy treatment planning capabilities and bolster its Elekta ONE software suite.

The collaboration between Elekta and Philips is not new; it dates back to June 2021, when the companies announced they were combining their capabilities to create integrated vendor-agnostic solutions to drive precision in oncology by enhancing interoperability between their systems and software.

“Thanks to continued investments over the years, our treatment planning system supports both Elekta and non-Elekta devices, including proton therapy, making Elekta ONE Planning one of the most competitive solutions in the market," said Maurits Wolleswinkel, president of linac and software solutions at Elekta, in a statement. "At ESTRO, we will unveil exciting new capabilities, including novel scripting elements inspired by Pinnacle, demonstrating Elekta ONE’s competitive advantage.”

Last month, GE HealthCare announced it would be expanding its radiation therapy collaboration with Elekta following its acquisition of MIM Software.

A demonstration of how Elekta ONE will incorporate Pinnacle's technology was a feature presentation at Elekta's booth during ESTRO 2024 in Glasgow, U.K.
