Beijing Cancer Hospital Becomes First Hospital in Mainland China to Introduce Fast and Precise RapidArc Radiotherapy Cancer Treatments
Date:7/16/2009

BEIJING, July 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cancer patients in mainland China are gaining access to fast and efficient radiotherapy treatments with the introduction of RapidArc(R) radiotherapy technology from Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR) at the Beijing Cancer Hospital.

The new system was unveiled at a 'ribbon-cutting' ceremony attended by many local dignitaries on July 10th. Doctors at the hospital intend to use RapidArc primarily for precise treatments of lung cancer, esophagus cancer, rectal cancer and head & neck cancer.

RapidArc delivers a precise and efficient treatment in single or multiple arcs of the treatment machine around the patient and makes it possible to deliver image-guided IMRT two to eight times faster than is possible with conventional IMRT. Faster treatments allow for greater precision, since there is less chance of patient or tumor movement during treatment delivery and, with less time on the treatment couch, also allow for greater patient comfort.

Beijing Cancer Hospital has treated more than 5,000 patients with conventional IMRT in recent years, gaining a global reputation for the quality of its treatments and the scientific papers published on its research. "Most IMRT treatments take between 15 and 30 minutes to
