Premion First in Australia to Treat Cancer Patients with RapidArc(R) Radiotherapy Technology from Varian Medical Systems
Date:9/16/2009

ssional and my urologist worked closely with Dr. MacKean to develop my treatment plan," he said.

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 intensity modulated radiotherapy (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. Conventional IMRT treatments are slower and more difficult for radiotherapy radiographers because they target tumors using a complex sequence of fixed beams from multiple angles.

"The philosophy of Premion at all five of our locations is to offer Queensland and northern New South Wales patients the full range of state-of-the-art facilities in a friendly, efficient and caring environment," added Dr. MacKean. "'We strive to avoid waiting lists and improve patient access."

Stuart Hamilton, Varian's regional sales director, adds, "Premion is continually striving to offer more advanced treatments for the benefit of cancer patients and we are delighted to be working with Premion to introduce RapidArc in Australia. Since the introduction of the technique in the US and Europe last year, more than 100 cancer centers worldwide have introduced this approach, improving the patient experience while maximizing treatment precision."
