December 27, 2007 - Integris Bass Baptist Health Center will construct a new Clinac iX linear accelerator by Varian Medical Systems, to allow doctors to treat tumors with better precision through intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and image guided radiation therapy (IGRT).
Patient mobility is provided by the Exact Couch, which uses remote couch motion operators to quickly and accurately move a patient without affecting the treatment.
The Clinac iX system features an ergonomically designed command center from which virtually every aspect of treatment can be controlled. A single keyboard puts all control modules within reach of the operator for improved workflow efficiency. Networked controllers have been integrated into a modular rack that can be placed under a single counter or stored in a cabinet, reducing the amount of linear space required to house the system. The electronics have also been consolidated, and placed within a low-profile stand for easy installation, maintenance, and upgrades.
