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

d in a standard 15 minute treatment slot rather than in conventional radiosurgery sessions that are typically two to five times longer. We are pleased with the clinical experience and patient response."

Prof. Carlo Greco from the University of Pisa in Italy described his clinic's experience with real-time tracking of prostate cancer using the Varian Calypso® system, which involves the use of implantable beacons to monitor motion by tracking movement in real time with sub-millimeter precision.

"Calypso enabled us to detect and measure motion during treatments so that we could plan to deliver doses within tighter margins around the disease site in order to reduce toxicity and complications in surrounding healthy tissue," said Prof. Greco. "Prostate motion occurs even during very short RapidArc treatments and detecting and correcting for this is of paramount importance when adopting hypo-fractionated schedules that involve delivering higher doses within each treatment session."

The Varian's Emerging Technologies Symposium was chaired and moderated by Professor Ben Slotman, head of radiation oncology at VU Medical Center in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Also at ESTRO 2012, Varian hosted a lunch symposium assessing different ways of delivering post-lumpectomy partial breast irradiation, with the relative benefits of external beam radiotherapy, intra-operative irradiation and brachytherapy examined. This session was moderated by Prof. Dr. Peter Niehoff of Koln Merheim Hospital in Germany and the debaters were Douglas Arthur, M.D. of Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine in the USA and Frank Sullivan, M.D. of Galway University Hospital in Ireland.
