South Florida Radiation Oncology on the Forefront of Cancer Treatment with the TrueBeam™ Radiotherapy System from Varian Medical Systems
Date:8/5/2011

BOCA RATON and JUPITER, Fla., Aug. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In a promising development for cancer patients in The Palm Beach area, South Florida Radiation Oncology announced today that it has acquired the TrueBeam system, an innovative system that enables a radically different approach to treating cancer with image-guided radiotherapy.

The TrueBeam system, from Varian Medical Systems, was engineered from the ground up to deliver more powerful cancer treatments with pinpoint accuracy and precision. It uniquely integrates new imaging and motion management technologies within a sophisticated new architecture that makes it possible to deliver treatments more quickly while monitoring and compensating for tumor motion, opening the door to new possibilities for the treatment of lung, breast, prostate, head and neck, as well as other cancers that are treatable with radiotherapy.  South Florida Radiation Oncology is the only cancer center in the palm beaches and the treasure coast with the TrueBeam system and is now available in both the Boca and Jupiter location.

"TrueBeam is a real game-changer that will enable us to treat even the most challenging cases with unprecedented speed and precision," said Ben Han, MD, Radiation Oncologist. "With a broad spectrum of new capabilities, TrueBeam breaks the mold in just about every dimension, making it possible for us to offer faster, more targeted treatments to tumors even as they move and change over time.  We are very excited to be the first radiation oncology center in Florida to offer this amazingly precise treatment."

High Speed Treatments

With dose delivery rates that are 40–140 percent higher than earlier generations of Varian technology, the TrueBeam system can complete a treatment faster. This makes it possible to offer greater patient comfort by shortening treatments, and to improve precision by leaving more time for tumor targeting accurately. "Intuitive" automation fur
