Varian and Siemens to Showcase Collaborative Offerings at 2013 ASTRO Meeting in Atlanta
Date:9/20/2013

e tumor or other targeted area. Using a robotic device called an afterloader, clinicians place the radioactive source into positions through applicators that have been inserted into the area being treated.

"HDR brachytherapy treatments are planned using anatomical images of the targeted area taken after applicators have been put in place," said Tim Clark, marketing manager for Varian BrachyTherapy.  "The Siemens Sliding Gantry CT is ideal for use right in the brachytherapy treatment room, so the patient doesn't have to be moved to another room for scanning.  It has the potential to minimize patient transport and possible applicator motion, which could compromise accuracy.  Image quality is much superior to what is possible using conventional X-rays or ultrasound imaging."

Respiratory Gating and CT Imaging

Varian and Siemens will also showcase the interoperability of a Siemens' CT scanner with Varian's Real-time Position Management™ (RPM) system. The brand new Biograph mCT Flow PET/CT scanner that Siemens will unveil at ASTRO also works in conjunction with Varian's RPM system.

"The RPM system, when used in conjunction with imaging, enables clinicians to understand how a tumor moves during a treatment," says Donohoe.  "This makes it possible to compensate for tumor motion while planning and delivering radiotherapy treatments in the lung and other parts of the body that are subject to respiratory motion.  By using these technologies together, cancer specialists can design and deliver treatments that minimize exposure of healthy tissues."

Varian and Siemens technology will be showcased in both companies' exhibits at the ASTRO meeting taking place Sept. 22-25 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.  Siemens will be in booth #929; Varian in booth #1115.
