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

ther speeds treatments with an up to fivefold reduction in the number of steps needed for image guidance and dose delivery.

Simple treatments that once took 15 minutes or more can be completed in less than two once the patient is in position. "These are significant reductions in treatment time," said Dr. Eugene Shieh, Radiation Oncologist.

Enhanced Precision

TrueBeam can be used for radiotherapy treatments including image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery (IGRT and IGRS), intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), RapidArc® radiotherapy and gated RapidArc.

The precision of the TrueBeam system is measured in increments of less than a millimeter. This accuracy is made possible by the system's sophisticated architecture, which synchronizes imaging, patient positioning, motion management, beam shaping and dose delivery, performing accuracy checks every ten milliseconds throughout the entire treatment.  Critical data points are measured continually as a treatment progresses, ensuring that the system maintains a "true isocenter," or focal point of treatment.

For lung and other tumors subject to respiratory motion, TrueBeam offers gated RapidArc® radiotherapy, which makes it possible to monitor patient breathing and compensate for tumor motion while quickly delivering dose during a continuous rotation around the patient.  "During the last decade, lung cancer became the leading cause of cancer death for both men and women in the United States," said Drs Han and Shieh. "With TrueBeam, we can treat a moving lung tumor as if it were standing still(1).  We expect this to make a meaningful difference for lung cancer patients in the area."

"With TrueBeam, we can select the optimal treatment for every type of cancer," said Dr. Ben Han, MD. "This is a breakthrough that lets us bring a wider spectrum of advanced radiotherapy treatment options to many more patients. It represents a quantum leap in our ability
