Slovenia's Sole Radiotherapy Hospital Unveils Novalis Tx(TM) Platform From Varian and BrainLAB
Date:12/21/2009

ital also treats several hundred new cancer cases each year with brachytherapy. The lack of radiotherapy capacity in Slovenia, a country of just under two million inhabitants, has led to long waiting lists.

"Even though we work in two shifts using the six megavoltage treatment machines, our capacity is clearly insufficient to meet the current standard of fifty percent of cancer patients that should receive radiotherapy during the course of their disease," says Professor Primoz Strojan, head of the radiotherapy department. "All patients with cancer that need radiotherapy have to come to our hospital. With Novalis Tx and RapidArc technology we are gaining a powerful weapon in our fight against cancer which should have, among many other benefits, a positive influence on bringing down waiting lists."

The Novalis Tx radiosurgery platform features very high dose delivery rates, which contributes to shorter treatment times. It also offers dynamic fine beam shaping and non-invasive, precise patient positioning for rapid and more comfortable treatments. Specialized X-ray imaging systems are used to pinpoint the target and position the patient with millimeter accuracy, compensating for any motion that occurs during a treatment.

Bozidar Casar says the clinic will be ready to deliver the full range of treatments when the Novalis Tx radiosurgery platform with RapidArc capability is commissioned in mid-2010.
