State-of-the-art TrueBeam™ System offers new treatment options for area cancer patients
The TrueBeam™ Radiation Therapy System from Varian® Medical Systems delivers faster radiation treatments, enhanced precision and faster imaging techniques for more accurate radiation delivery with less potential for side effects. The treatment integrates new imaging and motion management technologies to deliver treatments more quickly. This treatment process opens the door to new possibilities for the treatment of lung, breast, prostate, and head and neck cancers.
“With the addition of TrueBeam to our arsenal of treatment tools, we can select the optimal treatment for every type of cancer,” said Charles L. Perkins, III, M.D., Ph.D., Board Certified Radiation Oncologist with 21st Century Oncology. “This allows us to bring a wider spectrum of radiation therapy treatment options, using the most advanced technology in Southwest Florida to help patients in Charlotte County.”
TrueBeam provides new treatment options for cancer patients – targeting cancer with extreme accuracy, measured in millimeters. With its power and flexibility, clinicians can develop treatments that are best suited for each patient’s individual diagnosis.
“Treatments can be performed with greater precision and speed using TrueBeam, with many treatments lasting just a few minutes,” says David J. Rice, M.D., Board Certified Radiation Oncologist with 21st Century Oncology. “The sessions are pain-free and require no sedation, so patients can return to their normal activities right away.”
TrueBeam can be used for external beam radiation therapy treatments, including Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS), Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT), RapidArc® Radiotherapy Technology and gated RapidArc, all from one system.
