Cancer Patients in Central Vietnam to Gain Access to Advanced Radiotherapy Treatments Using Technology from Varian Medical Systems
Date:8/21/2012

PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cancer patients in Vietnam, a country of 88.5 million people, will get expanded access to advanced radiotherapy treatment using technology from Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR) as a result of close cooperation between the company, the US Embassy in Vietnam and Vietnamese partners.  Da Nang Cancer Hospital has contracted with Varian to provide a radiotherapy system capable of delivering intensity-modulated radiotherapy treatments (IMRT) that precisely target tumors while minimizing exposure of surrounding healthy tissues. 

"This will be the first Varian IMRT system in Central Vietnam," said Tom Duffy, vice president of sales and marketing for Varian in the Asia-Pacific region.  "The new facility includes a state-of-the-art Clinac® medical linear accelerator, Varian's market-leading Eclipse® radiotherapy treatment planning software, plus an Acuity imaging and simulation machine—everything the center needs to offer patients IMRT."

The Da Nang Cancer Hospital is a 500-bed charity hospital that serves patients in Da Nang and throughout central Vietnam.  Hospital personnel anticipate that the new technology from Varian will be operational and treating cancer patients sometime later this year.

"We are honored to equip this wonderful new facility serving the people of Vietnam," says Duffy.  "We hope the new radiotherapy facility at Da Nang Hospital will play an important part in addressing the country's needs for access to quality cancer care."

The U.S. Department of Commerce's Trade Advocacy Center actively supported Varian's bid through its International Trade Administration's Gold Key Matching Services, which arrange meetings with potential business partners in a targeted export market and offer assistance in developing strategies for pursuing business opportunities abr
