ourse of treatment," said Professor Grau.

Doctors at Aarhus University Hospital treat patients on 10 Varian linear accelerators, all of them equipped with the On-Board Imager® device for image-guided radiotherapy, and capable of three-dimensional cone-beam CT imaging. Two TrueBeam systems are currently being installed and are due to start treating clinically in four months.

TrueBeam

Designed to advance the treatment of lung, breast, prostate, head and neck, and other types of cancer, Varian's TrueBeam platform for image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery was introduced in April 2010 as the first fully-integrated system designed from the ground up to treat a moving target with  a high level of speed and accuracy.

Applicable for all forms of advanced external-beam radiotherapy including image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery (IGRT and IGRS), intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and RapidArc® radiotherapy, TrueBeam can deliver treatments with a dose delivery rate of up to 2400 monitor units per minute, double the maximum output of conventional systems. This makes it possible to offer shorter treatment times for patients, and to improve precision by leaving less time for tumor motion during dose delivery.  More than 225 TrueBeam systems have now been ordered by treatment centers around the world, and more than 65 installations are completed or in process.

RapidArc

RapidArc technology quickly delivers a precise image-guided IMRT (intensity modulated radiotherapy) treatment two to eight times faster than conventional IMRT.(2,3) Dose is delivered through a beam-shaping aperture that is continually reshaped to match the shape of the tumor as the treatment machine rotates around the patient. Over 1,600 RapidArc systems have been ordered, with nearly 1,000 of those deployed at treatment centers around the world.
