“We continue to expand our oncology offerings through strategic collaborations in adjacent fields that are also leaders in their disciplines. Through this collaboration with Elekta our vision is to enable more efficient, precise and personalized care across the cancer care continuum. We will remain focused on investments that can deliver the best cancer care, offering solutions that transform and humanize care,” said Chaitanya Sarawate, President & CEO, GE HealthCare South Asia and Managing Director, Wipro GE Healthcare.

Over the years, the company has brought together complementary solutions and technologies along the radiation therapy treatment pathway. GE HealthCare’s collaboration with Elekta in India is a testament to the company’s commitment to improving cancer outcomes with multiple partners and providers.

Manikandan Bala, Senior Vice President, TIMEA & Asia Pacific and Managing Director, India & South Africa, Elekta, said, “Delivering precision radiation therapy requires advanced patient positioning, motion management technologies, and state-of-the-art radiation therapy techniques. Elekta’s and GE HealthCare’s combination of radiation therapy solutions and diagnostic imaging will enable healthcare providers to deliver precise and personalized therapies that treat tumors effectively while sparing adjacent tissue and organs at risk. Together, these advanced offerings are designed to improve outcomes and increase the quality of life for patients. Elekta strives to assure that hospitals and cancer centers can create seamless ecosystems that facilitate efficient end-to-end cancer care.”
