"Within a year, the whole oncology department switched to a Varian hardware and software paperless environment, capable of delivering advanced radiotherapy techniques"

Dr. Al Hammadi added, "Varian's equipment and software supports our belief in seamless care. The ability to implement both RapidArc and stereotactic radiosurgery using 3D image guidance allows us to offer greater precision. In addition, the ARIA™ oncology information management system has enabled us go entirely paperless and fully integrate to the hospital's imaging systems, meaning better workflow and better overall patient care."

Part of the Hamad Medical Corporation, the government healthcare provider in the State of Qatar, Al Amal Hospital treats patients from across the Gulf region.
