Symposia Held to Educate Clinicians on RapidArc Radiotherapy Technology

February 20, 2008 - Varian Medical Systems will host multiple symposia about RapidArc radiotherapy technology to educate clinicians about the technology that reportedly delivers image-guided,intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) two to eight times faster than conventional IMRT or helical tomotherapy.

Future events intended exclusively for medical professionals are scheduled for Orlando, FL, February 28; Newport Beach, CA, March 18; Chicago, IL, May 3; Boston, MA, May 7; Philadelphia, PA, June 12; and Toronto, Canada (date tbc). External speakers have included Dr. Karl Otto, PhD, British Columbia Cancer Agency, Vancouver and Dr. Cedric Yu, ScD, University of Maryland Medical Center, Baltimore, MD.

The company recently received two FDA clearances for the treatment hardware and the treatment planning software module in Varian's Eclipse treatment planning system, which is designed to quickly deliver a complete volumetric IMRT treatment in a single arc of the treatment machine around the patient.

Varian has started taking orders for RapidArc, and will begin delivering it to customers in the spring of 2008.
