Prestigious London Hospital Enters Long-Term Agreement with Varian Medical Systems
Date:10/30/2007

far more quickly than with other IMRT systems," adds Dr. David Landau, Cancer Centre Steering Group, The London Clinic. "The flexibility of Trilogy to deliver RapidArc, stereotactic radiosurgery and dynamic IMRT will also provide the clinic with the ability to personalise radiotherapy treatments for every patient."

Varian's new RapidArc capability, introduced for the first time at the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO) meeting in Los Angeles this week, enables highly conformal treatment fields to be delivered very quickly. It allows clinicians to achieve precisely-sculpted 3-D dose distribution with a single 360-degree rotation of the linear accelerator gantry. RapidArc treatments can be delivered far more quickly than existing IMRT (intensity modulated radiotherapy) techniques, with beam times of just 2 to 3 minutes.

A fully-accessorized Trilogy accelerator, equipped with Varian's On-Board Imager(R) for fast and effective image-guidance, is capable of offering all standard radiation therapies as well as the most advanced treatments such as intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) and whole-body stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS).

"We are delighted that The London Clinic has decided to enter a long-term agreement with Varian and we look forward to expanding access to the world's most advanced radiotherapy treatments for the UK's cancer patients," said David Scott, Varian's UK sales manager.
