Wellington Hospital, New Zealand Becomes First in Southern Hemisphere to Offer Patients Fast and Precise TrueBeam Treatments
Date:12/14/2011

ncer, the TrueBeam platform for image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery is a fully-integrated radiotherapy system designed from the ground up to treat a moving target with speed and precision. It features a High Intensity Mode—one of six dose levels available to doctors—for customizing dose delivery based on a patient's specific tumor characteristics.

"In addition to improving workflow at the hospital, TrueBeam will enable us to introduce stereotactic body radiotherapy treatments for selected patients in 2012," says Lynne Greig, chief medical physicist. "It clearly positions us for the future while integrating easily with our existing suite of equipment."

Wellington Hospital treats 1300 patients each year, providing external beam and high dose rate brachytherapy radiation treatments using Varian equipment and software. It is one of just eight radiotherapy departments in the country.

Chris Cowley, Varian's regional director, says, "This hospital has made a clear commitment to offer its patients more advanced radiotherapy treatments while being mindful of the need to keep down waiting times. TrueBeam meets these needs and we are delighted to be working closely with Wellington Hospital to help them achieve their aims."
