Cancer Experts Detail Treatments using TrueBeam System to Reduce Number of Treatment Sessions and Take Better Account of Motion
Date:5/11/2012

BARCELONA, Spain, May 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- European cancer experts have reported their progress with promising new radiosurgical techniques for treating cancer and other conditions using new linear accelerator technology from Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR). Speakers at Varian's Emerging Technologies Symposium at the annual ESTRO conference detailed their experiences with fast hypo-fractionated treatments for prostate patients and RapidArc® Radiosurgery for intracranial and central nervous system indications.

Dr. Filippo Alongi, radiation oncologist at Humanitas Cancer Center in Rozzano-Milan, reported that he has used hypo-fractionation to reduce the number of treatment sessions for prostate cancer from 30 to as few as five.  The center is equipped with Varian's versatile TrueBeam system for radiotherapy and radiosurgery. 

"Our work at Humanitas is demonstrating that hypo-fractionation with TrueBeam is a precise and fast option for prostate cancer patients," said Dr. Alongi. "Each treatment is delivered in under five minutes and this compares very favorably against dedicated radiosurgical tools which can take 45 minutes per treatment session. We are giving the same dose with the same quality in a fraction of that time, and enabling patients to spend much less time on the treatment table."

Dr. Ufuk Abacioglu of Neolife Medical Center in Istanbul presented on the use of frameless, singe-fraction RapidArc® Radiosurgery for intracranial and central nervous system treatments, including malignant and benign tumors, vascular abnormalities and functional disorders. 

"Frameless, non-invasive localization of the target with image-guidance has made it possible for us to treat larger disease sites in fewer sessions while avoiding the invasive procedure of attaching a frame to the patient's skull," said Dr. Abacioglu. "Using TrueBeam's ultra-fast high intensity mode, image-guided radiosurgery can be complete
