four minutes."

Dr. Parag Parikh , assistant professor of radiation oncology at Washington University in St. Louis, U.S., detailed the results of an ongoing clinical trial using Calypso Anchored Beacon® transponders in lung cancer patients.²   The trial is primarily intended to evaluate tumor localization with the Calypso system for patients with implanted anchored transponders and to assess the positional stability of the transponders throughout the treatment process. "The data we have gathered so far shows that the implantation is safe and that there is very little migration of the markers," said Dr. Parikh.

The Varian symposium was chaired by Dr. Marta Scorsetti , director of radiotherapy and radiosurgery at the Humanitas Cancer Center in Milan, Italy, where more than 300 lung cancer patients have been treated using a TrueBeam treatment machine since its installation in July 2010.

The symposium commenced with Professor Philippe Lambin , head of radiation oncology at the MAASTRO Clinic in Maastricht, the Netherlands, outlining the need for software-based 'Decision Support Systems' (DSS) to allow individualized treatments.

Such systems, he said, are particularly valuable because of the huge volume of information that the modern clinician needs to assess. "With the help of DSS, doctors are able to more objectively select the best individualized treatment," said Prof. Lambin. "By utilizing a system which not only integrates all diagnostic information and therapeutic options but also takes into account the wishes of the patient, it's easier for medical professionals to propose tailor-made treatment plans to patients."
