A very special delivery! On Saturday 29th September an Elekta Gamma Knife Perfexion was safely delivered to the new Gamma Knife Centre at QSRC. The complex procedure took much planning and used a specialist crane to hoist the machine, carefully navigating it into a narrow gap between two buildings. Commissioning of the treatment machine is now underway in readiness for the first patients in a few weeks time.
