September 2, 2015 — Varian Medical Systems has added a new cloud-based toolkit to the company's OncoPeer interactive online forum, making development tools available for research that has the potential to lead to next-generation cancer treatment technologies.

Varian's new Developer Cloud houses digital tools like information about TrueBeam Developer Mode, an optional non-clinical development tool, and cloud-based applications for managing Developer Mode and simulating treatments. It is part of the company's overall objective to empower research-oriented clinical teams to accelerate the development of new treatment techniques and processes designed to improve outcomes for cancer patients.

In a separate development, the OncoPeer online forum — first launched last March in select geographic areas — is now accessible to Varian customers worldwide. Since March, users have established discussion groups on topics like oncology analytics, knowledge-based treatment planning, treatment planning using Eclipse software and the physics of radiotherapy. One discussion group focuses on how to use Varian's Aria information system to manage a medical oncology department. Other groups share information about Varian treatment delivery platforms.

Varian held an online seminar about Navigating OncoPeer last May. Interested clinicians can view a replay of the webcast.
