Varian Medical Systems to Supply Four Advanced Radiotherapy Treatment Machines to Global Hospitals in India
Date:11/2/2010

HYDERABAD, India, Nov. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced cancer treatments across India will become more widely available with the order of four state-of-the-art Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR) medical linear accelerators by Global Hospitals, one of the nation's leading private hospital groups. Three TrueBeam™ STx systems and a UNIQUE™ accelerator will be installed at Global Hospitals sites in Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai and Hyderabad in 2011.

"This will make some of the world's most advanced treatment capabilities accessible for cancer patients in these major Indian cities," says Dr. K. Ravindranath, chairman & managing director of Global Hospitals Group. "This country needs more radiotherapy equipment to help its cancer patients and we believe we can help relieve this situation by installing the modern and advanced devices available."

Dr. Ravindranath said Global Hospitals in Bangalore, Chennai and Mumbai were selected to receive new TrueBeam STx treatment machines because of the rapidly increasing cancer incidence in these major population centers, along with the strength of the neuroscience departments in those hospitals. He said the TrueBeam STx systems, all of which are equipped with BrainLAB iPlan planning systems, will enable Global Hospitals to offer the most advanced stereotactic and hypo-fractionated image-guided radiotherapy treatments available anywhere and would be shared by the group's oncologists and neurosurgeons. TrueBeam systems are capable of delivering treatments much more quickly than any other treatment machine and this enables cancer centers in these hospitals to treat more patients. The UNIQUE accelerator, which also features Varian's RapidArc® treatment technology for fast image-guided IMRT, is bound for the Aware Global Hospital in Hyderabad.

Designed to advance the treatment of lung, breast, brain, prostate, head
