Gamma Knife Centre, Cairo, New Era of Medical Perfexion

The Gamma Knife Centre, Cairo after more than decade of active participation to the medical services in Egypt, and as we proved ourselves as a story of success in delivering the best state of art medical service for the Egyptian patients together with patients from the Arab world and foreign patients as well we are celebrating of installing and running Gamma knife Perfexion.


We are having a new step forwards in our centre:

On June 2012 year we celebrate 11 years of serving the medical society in Egypt and the Arab world with the best possible state of art treatment with our Gamma knife model C, we will also celebrate the Launching of the most advanced model of the Gamma Knife which is the Gamma Knife Perfexion, this is a new start for our centre as we will be able to treat more patients with the best technology in the field of radiosurgery, the best planning system, and more capabilities to treat more difficult lesions in the brain.

Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ - stereotactic radiosurgery system

Perfexion dramatically streamlines workflow and expands the treatable volume through an automated, multi-source collimator. System benefits include faster set-up and treatment delivery to one or more tumors in a single session, and the potential to treat lesions in the paranasal sinuses, orbits and upper cervical spine — even paraspinal metastases and laryngeal tumors. Perfexion allows treatment of a wider range of targets faster and more efficiently than ever before.


















The radiosurgery system’s unique collimator is a permanent device divided into moveable sectors, ensuring superior conformity, accuracy and dosimetry while reducing residual dose to unintended areas. Integrated and intuitive treatment planning software facilitates creation of even the most complex plans (e.g., a donut-shaped dose distribution) by configuring composite shots that avoid overexposure to critical structures. Perfexion is fine-tuned to the task, resulting in fast, efficient treatments.
