CHENNAI, India, July 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cancer treatments have commenced in Chennai using the city's first TrueBeam™ STx system for radiotherapy and radiosurgery from Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR). The first patient was a 36-year-old male with rectal cancer who received intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) last week at MIOT Hospital using the fast and precise system.
