New Fast and Precise Treatment Planning System Among Varian Medical Systems Highlights at American Brachytherapy Society 2009 Meeting
Date:5/29/2009

BrachyVision Acuros, Enabling Superior Dose Calculation with Unmatched Speed, Unveiled at ABS 2009 in Toronto, Canada, May 31-June 2

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., May 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR) will be demonstrating its full range of brachytherapy cancer treatment equipment and software at the American Brachytherapy Society meeting in Toronto, Canada, from May 31 to June 2. Varian's exhibit will include the new BrachyVision(TM) Acuros(TM) system, which offers a significantly more accurate* way of calculating the dosimetry of cancer treatments.

Launched at the GEC-ESTRO Show in Portugal earlier this month, BrachyVision Acuros enables clinicians to rapidly calculate patient doses for brachytherapy treatments with greater accuracy.

"This is a quantum leap forward in terms of accuracy with timeframes that were previously unimaginable," says Sophie Wetherall, Varian BrachyTherapy software product manager. "BrachyVision Acuros offers an improvement in dose calculation that will help clinicians make better decisions about dose to their patients and further their knowledge to make treatments more accurate."

The Medical Physics department at the University of Athens in Greece is among the institutions that assessed BrachyVision Acuros during its research phase, and publications on the subject have been submitted for peer review. Dr. Panos Papagiannis and his team were most impressed by the speed of the system.

"Being able to have a representation of the dose distribution in an inhomogeneous, bounded geometry in a matter of several minutes just didn't seem plausible until now," says Dr. Papagiannis. "We are confident that Acuros marks a significant improvement over current treatment planning systems."
