Varian Medical Systems, Vision RT Reach Distribution Agreement

October 27, 2010 – A new distribution agreement has been signed allowing Varian Medical Systems to offer Vision RT’s motion management products to its customers. The two companies have been working in collaboration to facilitate the interoperability between their respective products.

Vision RT’s patient tracking and monitoring product, AlignRT, is now fully compatible with Varian’s Motion Management Interface for the Varian Clinac iX and Trilogy linear accelerators. AlignRT provides automated couch control and radiation beam hold if patient motion that exceeds a user defined tolerance is detected. In addition, GateCT facilitates 4-D CT reconstruction, and together with the GateRT capabilities for markerless respiratory gating provides a comprehensive end-to-end solution for respiratory-gated radiation therapy.

“We are excited about the integration of Varian’s radiation delivery and Vision RT’s advanced motion management solutions”, says Arno J. Mundt, M.D., professor and chair of the department of radiation oncology at University of California, San Diego. “This allows us to entertain a new treatment paradigm that combines precise treatment delivery, patient comfort and safety.”

“We believe that Vision RT has developed a very robust, multi-purpose optical guidance solution," says Corey Zankowski, senior director, product management of Varian. “Vision RT will help to maintain the high level of precision provided by Varian’s imaged-guided treatment technology throughout the entire treatment session. With increased certainty in the target position during the course of treatment, clinicians will be able to spare more normal tissue, potentially improving patient outcomes”
