Varian Delivers IGRT Treatment to Cancer Patients in India

Cancer patients in India can now receive IGRT treatments with the arrival of Varian’s Clinac iX linear accelerator equipped with an On-Board Imager device for imaging and tumor tracking at the newly opened radiation oncology center at Apollo Hospital in Ahmendabad.
Apollo Hospital is the first treatment center in India to offer IGRT using a treatment system that combines imaging and treatment technologies on one machine. The new facility was established through an alliance between Comprehensive Blood and Cancer Center (CBCC) of Bakersfield, CA, and Apollo Hospital Groups, a healthcare group in south and southeast Asia.
"We are offering Indian cancer patients the same standards of care that we offer to our patients in the U.S. That meant outfitting the Indian center with Varian's cutting edge technology for efficient delivery of accurate and precise image-guided radiation therapy treatments," said Ravi Patel, M.D., founder of CBCC.
