Olympic Medical Cancer Center Installs Temporary Radiation Oncology Facility
Date:12/17/2010

SEQUIM, Wash. and AVENTURA, Fla., Dec. 17, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- This week, construction crews and engineers were on site at Olympic Medical Cancer Center, using cranes to set in place six 20- to 50-ton units that make up the Temporary Radiotherapy Vault (TRV) by RAD Technology Medical Systems LLC.

Once complete, this "temporary vault" will allow for a seamless transition of patient care as Olympic Medical Cancer Center decommissions and dismantles its previous linear accelerator and vault, and builds the vault required to house the world-class Varian TrueBeam™. Completion of the entire project is scheduled for April 2010.

"Our goal was to bring the latest radiotherapy technology to the cancer patients we serve," says Dr. Rena Zimmerman, medical director of radiation oncology, Olympic Medical Cancer Center. "Thanks to RAD's transitional unit, we can maintain our patient-centered focus by continuing to provide care as we upgrade our facility."  

RAD's TRV system, a portable building equipped with a pre-installed linear accelerator and state-of-the-art radiation shielding technology, provides an efficient and effective solution to managing patient treatments during an upgrade process.

Advances in radiotherapy technology have many cancer centers looking to upgrade their linear accelerators. Bringing in the latest technology, however, can come with some unintended consequences. With 20 to 40 patients treated daily by a linear accelerator for a period of more than six weeks, moving patients to an alternate location that may require hours of travel time is disruptive. The RAD solution duplicates the cancer center's processes in a compact and temporary package, allowing patient treatments to continue as the new treatment system is installed.
