GE Healthcare collaborates with Elekta

To expand access to precision radiation therapy solutions 

GE Healthcare and Elekta have signed a global commercial collaboration agreement in the field of radiation oncology, enabling the two companies to provide hospitals with a comprehensive offering across imaging and treatment for cancer patients requiring radiation therapy.


As hospitals increasingly seek flexible and interoperable simulation and guidance technology, GE Healthcare and Elekta aim to meet the major need for radiotherapy solutions across both developed and developing markets. 

“Access to radiation therapy is a significant challenge in several parts of the globe. We are pleased that this collaboration is a step in the right direction to make more comprehensive precision health solutions more readily available,” said Jan Makela, President & CEO Imaging, GE Healthcare. 

Gustaf Salford, CEO, Elekta, said, “We are driven by our hospitals and cancer centres’ preferences and their need for comprehensive solutions in effective, efficient and safe cancer care. Therefore, we’re excited about this collaboration with GE Healthcare. We have many mutual health care providers who see clear synergies and advantages with our respective, strong product portfolios. This will allow us to jointly promote solutions for each cancer centre’s needs. Elekta strives to assure that hospitals and cancer centres can create seamless ecosystems that facilitate efficient end-to-end cancer care.”

GE Healthcare and Elekta will continue to offer their solutions using standard interoperability and facilitate interfaces with any vendor’s systems.

The agreement is non-exclusive, meaning each party can continue to cooperate with other partners. Separately, both companies are eager to improve interoperability and streamline workflows in radiation oncology.
