True Beam

TrueBeam is the latest innovation from Varian in linear accelerator technology. It employs many improvements to the standard linear accelerator that not only make treatment more efficient, but also improve patient comfort, and treatment tolerability.

TrueBeam accelerates patient treatment by “intelligent” automation, imaging, positioning and reduction of the number of steps needed for treatment up to 5-fold. It enhances patient convenience by shortening treatment periods because of higher dose rates. For example, a standard IMRT treatment that normally lasts 10-15 minutes can be completed in less than 2 minutes. The machine can be fitted to perform radiosurgery and complex procedures, which typically last hours, in 5 to 20 minutes. The improved efficiency and faster treatments have the important advantage of decreasing the probability of tumor movement during treatment.

The integration of image guidance, high dose rates, precision and accuracy make TrueBeam an excellent choice for your radiation needs.
