GLASGOW, Scotland, July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cancer patients in the west of Scotland will gain access to state-of-the-art cancer treatment closer to home when a new radiotherapy center opens near Glasgow next year. Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR) has been selected to equip the new department and an order was placed in June for four TrueBeam™ medical linear accelerators.

Two of the new TrueBeam systems, which offer fast and efficient radiotherapy and radiosurgery treatments, will replace older treatment machines at the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Center in Glasgow. The hospital treats more than 7,000 patients each year on 11 Varian medical linear accelerators. With a catchment area covering half the population of Scotland, the center has a history of pioneering advanced radiotherapy treatments. 

The other two Varian TrueBeam systems will equip the Beatson's new satellite department at Monklands Hospital in Airdrie, situated about 15 miles east of Glasgow. Around 80 patients a day are expected to undergo radiotherapy at the new satellite service.

Designed to treat a moving tumor with speed and accuracy, Varian's TrueBeam system incorporates numerous technical innovations that dynamically synchronize imaging, patient positioning, motion management, and treatment delivery during a radiotherapy or radiosurgery procedure. TrueBeam has been designed to advance the treatment of lung, breast, intracranial, prostate, head and neck, and other types of cancer.
