Elekta pledges $1 million to support RT research

Elekta has promised $1 million to the Radiation Oncology Institute, a campaign spearheaded by the American Society for Radiation Oncology to raise awareness of radiation therapy.

To date, the institute has raised $7 million of its $10 million goal. ASTRO initially kicked in $5 million that was matched by $3 million from ASTRO members. Other contributors include Varian Medical Systems at $2 million.

The institute will conduct objective research on the specialty to document the value, safety, efficacy and cost effectiveness of radiation therapy, according to Colleen A. Lawton, MD, campaign cochair.
