Date:1/11/2012

TOKYO, Jan. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR), a world leader in radiotherapy equipment and software for the treatment of cancer, has established its first education center in Tokyo, Japan, to train radiation oncologists, medical physicists, and technologists who work with Varian's cancer treatment systems. In addition, the company has established a clinical contact center (Help Desk), to provide phone support for Varian's customers in Japan.

These services are housed in a new facility that is conveniently located in central Tokyo.  The training center will begin offering courses to radiation oncology clinical professionals in February 2012.  It features a computer-equipped classroom with 20 work stations and state of the art audio/visual equipment, as well as two customer lounges.
