Experts Assert That Varian Technologies Deliver Speed and Clinical Accuracy in Treating Cancer Patients
Date:9/24/2008

in Movsas, MD, to offer his patients image-guided stereotactic radiotherapy and radiosurgery treatments without the invasive process of planting fiducial markers, such as gold seeds, into the tumors. Using the On-Board Imager(TM) device on a new Novalis Tx(TM) treatment platform, Movsas and his clinical team can generate 3-D images that show soft tissue structures, such as the tumor and surrounding organs, making fiducial markers unnecessary.

"It's often not possible to place fiducial markers into lung tumors without risking the possibility of a collapsed lung or other injury," said Movsas, who is chairman of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. "Even when fiducials can be safely used, a cone-beam CT image is still critical because it shows us key information about the tumor itself, like changes in the tumor volume or shape over time."

In addition to the On-Board Imager, the Novalis Tx platform at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit incorporates ExacTrak(R) room-based X-ray imaging system, and having both offers some key advantages, Movsas said. "While cone-beam CT can provide us with in depth data about the targeted tumor, ExacTrak can be used strategically, to take a "snap shot," even during treatment, for a rapid verification that the tumor is still in the correct position."

Movsas, also spoke of the sophisticated stereotactic body radiosurgery (SBRT) work that has been taking place at Henry Ford for some time, using earlier generations of linear accelerators from Varian and BrainLAB. Henry Ford clinicians have treated thousands of patients with focused stereotactic radiosurgery, and they have become known for their pioneering clinical work treating tumors of the spine. The new Novalis Tx is being used to build on this expertise, and to help create a more fully integrated multidisciplinary stereotactic radiosurgery program.
