Eastern Europe's First Novalis Tx(TM) Radiosurgery Platform Begins Radiotherapy Treatments in Latvia using RapidArc(R) Technology
Date:10/14/2009

RIGA, Latvia, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Doctors in Latvia have begun treatments using the region's first Novalis Tx(TM) radiosurgery platform from Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR) and BrainLAB. Two prostate cancer patients have been treated using Varian's RapidArc® radiotherapy technology at the Riga Eastern Clinical University Hospital.

The Novalis Tx radiosurgery platform together with RapidArc technology enabled the clinicians to treat prostates with image-guided, intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) in about half the time typically needed for conventional IMRT. "Our new radiosurgical instrument enabled us to spare surrounding healthy organs while precisely targeting the tumor with a high dose," said Dr. Sergey Popov, head of the hospital's radiotherapy department.

Dr. Popov said the Novalis Tx radiosurgery platform is the Baltic region's first machine for frameless intra-cranial stereotactic radiosurgery of brain lesions and he announced that cranial treatments would begin this month. Latvia's minister of health Prof. Baiba Rozentale is celebrating the arrival of the machine and the new treatment capability at a public ceremony today.

"The whole region has been waiting for this landmark as this machine represents the first ever stereotactic radiosurgery capability in any of the Baltic states of Latvia, Lithuania or Estonia," added Dr. Popov. "We chose the Novalis Tx radiosurgery platform because it gives us great clinical flexibility, enabling us to deliver RapidArc, IMRT, conformal treatments, and our first stereotactic radiosurgery techniques. In the past, patients have had to travel overseas for such treatments, mostly to Germany, but they will now receive state-of-the-art treatments here in Latvia."

The Novalis Tx radiosurgery platform features very high dose delivery rates
