Radiation Oncology Expert From Stanford University Highlights How Image Guidance and RapidArc® Technology are Improving the Treatment of Lung Cancer
Date:10/18/2010

etermining the extent of tumor motion, cone-beam CT imaging for pre-treatment patient positioning, respiratory gating for motion management, high dose delivery rates for efficiency, and RapidArc to attack the tumor from all angles in a 360-degree arc.

"SABR for early stage lung cancer is rapidly maturing, with promising early results," Dr. Loo concluded.  

Another presentation, by Maria Chan, M.D., of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, focused on the use of Varian's On-Board Imager® device to perform IGRT.  The On-Board Imager is a standard component of Varian's high-energy linear accelerators for the treatment of cancer.  It is used to generate radiographic (2-D), cone-beam CT (3-D) or fluoroscopic images that show how a tumor moves as a patient breathes in and out.  These images make it possible to accurately pinpoint the tumor and adjust the patient's position just prior to each treatment.

A third presenter, Christopher Willett, M.D., of Duke University, discussed his clinical team's use of RapidArc® technology to deliver precise image-guided treatments quickly by delivering the dose continuously from 360 degrees around the patient while shaping the treatment beam to match the shape of the tumor from every angle.  RapidArc makes it possible to complete an image-guided treatment two to eight times faster than is possible with conventional approaches to beam delivery.

"Varian Medical Systems has a corporate mission of helping radiation oncology professionals to save another 100,000 lives every year," said Thomas P. Duffy, Varian's vice president of sales and marketing for the Asia Pacific region.  "To that end, we are committed to supporting the clinical adoption of advanced forms of radiotherapy across China.  We sponsored this symposium as part of our commitment to facilitating the transfer of best clinical practices between the east and the west."
