at dynamically synchronize imaging, patient positioning, motion management, and treatment delivery during a radiotherapy or radiosurgery procedure. The advanced RapidArc system delivers precise image-guided IMRT (intensity modulated radiotherapy) up to four times faster than conventional IMRT.
As well as ordering the TrueBeam system in March, Poole Hospital has also upgraded its two existing Varian linear accelerators with On-Board Imager® and RapidArc technology, enabling fast and efficient image-guided IMRT treatments for their patients.
David Scott , Varian's UK sales director, says, "The ten Varian machines offered through the NHS Supply Chain commitment deal have been ordered swiftly by hospitals. This shows that Varian will continue as the premier supplier to National Health Service hospitals, developing technologies that offer patients advanced radiotherapy and radiosurgery treatments that can be delivered quickly and efficiently."
Other TrueBeam systems in the NHS Supply Chain initiative have been ordered over the past year by hospitals in Guildford (x2), Newcastle (x2), Hereford, Hull, Liverpool, and Sheffield.
