TrueBeam System

The TrueBeam system synchronizes imaging, patient positioning, motion management, and treatment delivery. The TrueBeam system can deliver treatments up to 50 percent faster than earlier, industry-leading Varian systems. This makes it possible to offer greater patient comfort by shortening treatments, and to improve precision by leaving less time for tumor motion during treatment.

"Intelligent" automation adds additional speed to treatments. There are fewer steps required for imaging, positioning and treating patients. A standard intensity-modulated treatment (IMRT) that would typically take ten minutes can be completed in less than two minutes. Currently a patient being treated for prostate cancer is on the treatment table for approximately 15 minutes. The TrueBeam would reduce treatment time to approximately 6 to 7 minutes. Patients with head and neck cancer undergo treatment for about 15 to 20 minutes. The TrueBeam will reduce that to less than ten minutes.
