setup. The increased throughput on our most advanced treatment unit will allow the UAB Department of Radiation Oncology to offer image-guided intensity-modulated radiation therapy to more patients."

Yashoda Hospital in Hyderabad, India, is among the leading oncology centers to order RapidArc. The private hospital, which currently treats more than 900 patients a year using a single Varian Clinac linear accelerator, has announced plans to install a second Clinac with an On-Board Imager(R) for image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) and fast and precise RapidArc capability.

"RapidArc will certainly help our speed and efficiency and we see many advantages in using it for IMRT treatments for head and neck cancers in particular," says Dr. G.S. Rao, managing director of the Yashoda group of hospitals. "We will also take advantage of RapidArc for prostate, cervical and pediatric cancers. This is marvelous for us because this advanced radiotherapy capability will help to put us among the leading hospitals in the world. It's a very exciting time for us and a very exciting technology."

"In modern cancer treatments it's important for treatment machines to be versatile," says Mohan Suntha, MD, of the University of Maryland Department of Radiation Oncology. "Radiation oncologists need to be able to deliver high quality arc therapy for prostate and head and neck tumors, but you also need to deliver fixed beam treatments for breast cancer in order to avoid unnecessary exposure of the heart and lung; you need motion management for lung cancer treatments; and electron beam treatments for lesions on or near the skin. To have a single machine that offers all these treatments in a high quality fashion is the best approach for our patients."

Each year 10.9 million people worldwide are diagnosed with cancer and there are 6.7 million deaths from the disease. The global number of new cancer diagnoses is predicted to increase to 15 million per annum by 2020 and 20 milli
