Varian Medical Systems to Showcase a Wide Spectrum of New and Updated Products That Improve Radiotherapy Treatment Processes at 2009 AAPM Meeting
Date:7/23/2009

d Jeff Amacker, director of clinical solutions. "No two patients and no two tumors are alike. We are committed to providing clinicians with the flexibility and the tools they need to choose the optimal treatment approach for each and every patient, and then deliver that treatment."

Varian will also exhibit other products and capabilities at the 2009 meeting of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), taking place here from July 26-30, including:

  • A new "knowledge based" automatic segmentation tool (acquired last month from Houston-based IKOEmed and IKOEtech) that performs automatic contouring of tumors and surrounding anatomy by comparing diagnostic images with pre-contoured images from a database created by renowned radiation oncologists.
  • PortalVision(TM) advanced imaging, which enables clinics without Varian's On-Board Imager(TM) device to use the mega-voltage treatment beam to generate images to guide patient positioning for image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT).
  • A new version of Portal Dosimetry(TM), a quality assurance tool for radiotherapy treatment plans, with enhancements to the user interface and an improved workflow.
  • Large-field IMRT, which makes it possible to create a single treatment plan for treating a large tumor and then deliver the treatment in one operation, rather than treating one small portion of the tumor at a time.

Varian's AAPM exhibit will also feature two demonstration stations:

  • A remote access demonstration station showing how easily Varian software products can be accessed remotely, using different types of work stations and technology platforms.
  • A "Works in Progress" area, which will highlight interfaces that have been developed to enable Varian technology to work with products like the Calypso(R) 4D Localization System(TM) t
