Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah International Research Center Signs With Varian Medical Systems and IMRIS for Future Technology for Use in Radiotherapy
Date:11/2/2010

JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia, Nov. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The Saudi Arabian National Guard Health Affairs ("NGHA") here today announced it has signed an agreement with Varian Medical Systems and IMRIS, Inc., to develop and build a facility for magnetic resonance-guided radiation therapy (MRgRT™).

Under the agreement, Varian and IMRIS will supply a cancer treatment solution that combines IMRIS' unique movable magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology with Varian's latest linear accelerator technology, the TrueBeam™ system.  MRI provides high quality soft tissue imaging that can be used to eradicate tumors using radiotherapy or radiosurgery.

"While this technology is still in the early developmental phase, we see great potential to advance the ability of clinicians to target tumors within soft tissue more precisely," said Dow Wilson, president of Varian's Oncology Systems business.

The solution will be designed to permit a high-field MRI scanner to move in and out of the radiation therapy room on demand, providing MR imaging to confirm a tumor's location without having to move the patient from the treatment couch or transport the patient to and from another room, as would be required today.  Due to the mobile nature of the MRI system, the radiation therapy systems are expected to be offered in multi-room configurations and include independent MR-simulation capabilities for the MR system to further enhance financial utility for hospitals.

Bandar Al Knawy, MD, FRCPC. CEO OF NGHA said, "The primary goal at National Guard Health Affairs is to become the nationwide leader of healthcare facilities in the region, as well as a globally recognized healthcare system with outstanding clinical services, high quality education/training and cutting-edge research. With our valuable partners, this project will demonstrate that clearly."

"We believe that MRI can provide improved soft tissue discrimination leading to great
