This advanced oncology radiotherapy system is fast, precise, and can enhance the overall patient experience during treatment.

The advanced imaging and powerful treatment modes of this radiotherapy machine allows our doctors at Garnet Health Medical Center to treat some of the most complex cancers effecting our patients, including cancers effecting the:
Increased Precision with Motion Management Technologies
The machine has the full capability to perform frame-less based Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT). To ensure the patient’s position accuracy during the treatment, an advance image system called OSMS (Optical Surface Monitor system) is used to hold the radiation beam if the body movement is more than 1-2 mm. The beam will automatically resume if the body part back to its original planned position.
By integrating advanced imaging with the motion management technologies of OSMS, also allows for the delivery of treatment while monitoring and compensating for respiratory tumor motion. This means that even as tumors move when a patient breathes (for example, those in the lung or breast), treatment can still be precisely targeted due to special tools that compensate for motion throughout a treatment.
Faster Treatment Benefits Overall Patient Experience
Treatments with the Varian TrueBeam Radiotherapy system are fast, which can not only make the patient experience overall more comfortable and convenient during radiation therapy, but it also helps protect healthy tissue and surrounding organs by reducing tumor motion during treatment.
Through the TrueBeam radiotherapy treatment system, patient experience is also enhanced due to the built-in communications system which allows our clinical staff to be in constant communication with patients.
