Varian TrueBeam

Advanced Option for Radiation Therapy

The Varian TrueBeam system allows for a radically different approach to treating cancer. The TrueBeam system, from Varian Medical Systems, was engineered to deliver more powerful cancer treatments with pinpoint accuracy and precision.

It uniquely integrates new imaging and motion management technologies within a new design that makes it possible to deliver treatments more quickly. The system also monitors and compensates for tumor motion, opening the door to new possibilities for the treatment of lung, breast, prostate, head, and neck, as well as other cancers that are treatable with radiotherapy. 

Other benefits of the TrueBeam system include:

  • Faster Treatments — Greater patient comfort by shortening treatments and improved precision with less time for tumor motion during dose delivery
  • Enhanced Precision — The precision of the TrueBeam system is measured in increments of less than a millimeter and accuracy checks are performed every 10 milliseconds throughout the entire treatment
  • Faster Imaging at Lower Doses — TrueBeam imaging technology can produce the three-dimensional images used to fine-tune tumor targeting in 60 percent less time and creates images using 25 percent less X-ray dose

The TrueBeam system will also allow doctors to select the optimal treatment for every type of cancer – a breakthrough that lets us bring a wider spectrum of advanced radiotherapy treatment options to many more patients.
