ation of the tumor just prior to fast treatment delivery using RapidArc, all of which greatly increased the confidence of the treatment team in the precision of delivery. The high dose radiation area was restricted to the tumor and the surrounding healthy tissue and critical organs received very low doses."

"Due to the high precision and the speed of treatment delivery, and the associated increase in patient comfort, RapidArc will eventually replace all 'conventional' stereotactic treatments for early stage lung cancer at our hospital."

RapidArc was introduced by Varian earlier this year and to date more than 30 hospitals around the world are using this new technology for advanced, precise and fast treatments. Non-small cell lung cancer treatments require extremely precise radiotherapy delivery to avoid affecting surrounding critical organs. Worldwide, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in men and the second leading cause of cancer death in women.
