Varian Medical Systems to Exhibit Cancer Treatment and X-ray Imaging Technologies at China Med Exhibition

Varian to showcase products ranging from treatment planning software for radiation therapy to flat panel detectors for filmless X-ray imaging

BEIJING, March 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Varian Medical Systems, Inc. (NYSE: VAR) will showcase the full spectrum of the company's cancer treatment and X-ray imaging products, including some made available for the first time in China, at the upcoming China Med 21st International Medical Instruments and Equipment Exhibition in Beijing from March 19-21.

Varian will exhibit:

  • The Clinac iX medical linear accelerator, a radiation therapy machine that was introduced into China last year. This treatment machine incorporates a three-dimensional X-ray imager to improve tumor targeting. It can also be upgraded to deliver RapidArc(TM) radiotherapy, which enables doctors to deliver highly-precise image-guided radiotherapy treatments two to eight times faster than was previously possible.
  • Varian's market-leading medical software products, including Eclipse(TM) radiotherapy treatment planning software and ARIA(R) cancer treatment management software.
  • The GammaMedplus(TM) afterloader, a machine for delivering brachytherapy, which is a way of treating cancer by placing tiny radiation sources directly into a targeted tumor.
  • A broad array of X-ray tubes and the company's PaxScan(R) line of flat-panel digital X-ray image detectors, which are used for filmless imaging in medical, dental, and other applications.

"Varian is committed to offering customers the largest selection of X-ray tubes and digital image detectors to serve in a broad range of applications," said Hsiao-Li Pan, manager of Varian's X-ray products distribution business in China. "We will exhibit a variety of X-ray tubes, including one capable of completing a full CT (computed tomography) scan in half a second."

"Varian is pleased to be showcasing its radiotherapy and X-ray products at China Med this year and to be expanding its operations in China," said Ling Zhang, Varian's marketing manager in Beijing, where the company manufactures radiotherapy machines and provides clinical training for medical professionals who treat cancer. Varian's facility in Beijing is also gearing up to manufacture X-ray tubes.

The China Med exhibition will be take place at the China International Exhibition Center in Beijing from March 19-21, 2009.
