Yashoda Cancer Institute Commences Radiosurgery Treatments Using Varian Clinac Linear Accelerator
Date:7/14/2014

; radiotherapy, which the hospital began delivering in 2008, making it the first in Asia to do so. With RapidArc, the machine quickly delivers the treatment while continuously rotating around the patient, and the beam is constantly shaped and reshaped during the rotation to match the shape and size of the tumor.

Yashoda Cancer Institute hosted a seminar on High Intensity Mode Radiosurgery at the Hyatt Park Hotel in Hyderabad yesterday. Clinicians from across Asia attended the event to share experiences and hear from some the leading exponents in radiosurgery from across the world. The inauguration ceremony was headed by the Honorable First Chief Minister of Telangana State, Sri K. Chandrasekhar Rao Garu.   

"Varian is the world leader in radiotherapy and radiosurgery technology and we have pioneered high intensity dose delivery for our family of medical linear accelerators, enabling clinicians to deliver up to 2400 monitor units of radiation per minute when appropriate," says Ashok Kakkar, Varian's senior managing director in India. "That delivery speed is unmatched in the industry. Treating patients with high intensity beams requires careful and precise patient setup and monitoring, which is aided by our robotically controlled image guidance solution."

"Around the world, as at Yashoda Institute, these advanced capabilities are enabling fast and precise treatments for a range of indications, particularly lung and liver cancer that have traditionally been difficult to treat curatively with traditional radiotherapy."

He said thousands of installed Varian Clinac linear accelerators are potential candidates for upgrades with High Intensity Mode technology and the clinical advantages this technology brings.
