Local cancer patients are benefiting from the latest state-of-the-art equipment in radiation oncology with the introduction of TrueBeam® at the Nepean Cancer and Wellness Centre.
The high-precision TrueBeam® radiotherapy system by Varian delivers precise dosages of radiotherapy to treat cancer wherever it is found in the body. It offers advanced imaging and high precision dosage control, improving the accuracy and safety of treatments for patients.
Two TrueBeam® systems will replace existing non-Varian systems at the Nepean Cancer and Wellness Centre with installation of the first system now complete, and the second system due to be installed in early 2024.
Varian’s family of medical linear accelerators offer numerous technical innovations including improved imaging, patient positioning, motion management, and treatment delivery during a radiotherapy or radiosurgery procedure.
Dr Maria Azzi, Head of Radiation Oncology at the Nepean Cancer and Wellness Centre said, “We look forward to this partnership with Varian which will provide our patients and service with access to continuous state-of-the-art technology with improved accuracy and precision.”
“The installation of these Truebeam® systems highlights our commitment to delivering the very latest in radiotherapy treatments, enhancing care to our cancer patients.”
