Varian Medical Systems Showcases Advanced Radiotherapy Systems for Treating Cancer at 2012 Arab Health Congress and Exhibition

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Jan. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR), the world leader in radiotherapy, is spotlighting its family of advanced treatment machines and integrated software solutions at the 2012 Arab Health Congress and Exhibition over the next four days. The Varian exhibit (Sheikh Saeed Hall, Booth No. S3-E40) focuses on latest developments and future innovations in Varian's complete line of medical linear accelerators – including the fast and precise TrueBeam system – along with Eclipse™ treatment planning software, ARIA® oncology information software, proton therapy systems, brachytherapy solutions, and its full range of X-ray tubes and digital image detectors.  

"We are excited to be able to showcase our advanced treatment, software and imaging systems at this prestigious event," says Rolf Staehelin, Varian's director international marketing for EMEA and APAC. "Varian is the clear market leader in radiotherapy and radiosurgery in the Gulf Corporate Council (GCC) countries and is at the forefront of technology advances that help clinicians benefit patients by delivering faster and more efficient treatments. We are looking forward to sharing our excitement about these developments with the radiation oncology community in this key region."

Designed to advance the treatment of lung, breast, prostate, gynaecologic, liver, head and neck, intracranial and other types of cancer, Varian's TrueBeam™ system was engineered from the ground up to treat tumors with unprecedented speed and accuracy. It features a multitude of technical innovations that dynamically synchronize imaging, patient positioning, motion management, and treatment delivery. With its High Intensity Mode, TrueBeam machines can deliver very high doses quickly and accurately, more than twice as fast as earlier generations of Varian technology.  

During the show, Varian is hosting a symposium on emerging technologies and advanced clinical applications at the American Hospital, Dubai's only radiotherapy center, with presentations followed by a tour of the facility. Key presentations include describing early treatments using Varian's RapidArc® radiosurgery at the American Hospital, as well as using ARIA oncology information software to create a paperless department there. For further information please download the symposium flyer.

As well as radiotherapy systems and software, the Varian booth also showcases the company's range of advanced X-ray tubes and digital image detectors for high quality filmless imaging, developed by the company's X-ray Products group.
