The TrueBeam system, which Varian designed to treat a moving target with unprecedented speed and accuracy, features technical innovations to dynamically synchronize imaging, patient positioning, motion management, and treatment delivery. With its High Intensity Mode, TrueBeam offers faster, more efficient and more precise radiotherapy for cancer treatment. The John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center is New Jersey's largest and most comprehensive center dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, management, and research of all types of cancer. After TrueBeam was installed by Varian, D3 physicists commissioned it for clinical use.  

"D3 Radiation Oncology Solutions was an easy choice for assisting us with our Varian TrueBeam commissioning project," said Alois M. Ndlovu, Ph.D., acting director of medical physics, John Theurer Cancer Center, Hackensack University Medical Center. "D3 has an earned and well-deserved reputation for quality work."

"The collaborative commissioning and data modeling process with D3 was comprehensive and efficient," said Mehmet Tuna, director of radiation oncology, John Theurer Cancer Center, Hackensack University Medical Center.

"Commissioning a TrueBeam system must take into account that many TrueBeam installations could have as many as six photon energies, whereas most conventional linear accelerators have two," said Ron Lalonde, Ph.D., DABR, chief scientific officer, D3 Radiation Oncology Solutions. "The High Intensity Mode beams are new, so centers have to learn what these beams ought to look like. And small field measurement, with appropriate small detectors and precise setup of measurements, is critical for TrueBeam, especially for stereotactic radiosurgery."
