Varian, ScandiDos Sign Distribution Agreement

March 8, 2011 – Varian Medical Systems and ScandiDos have signed a nonexclusive distributor agreement. The agreement, which covers the ScandiDos Delta4PT pre-treatment verification system, allows Varian and its affiliates worldwide to offer it to their customers, providing additional solutions for fast and accurate verification of complex radiation therapy technologies.

Delta4PT will be used with Varian’s RapidArc radiotherapy technology, the TrueBeam system and the company’s technology for intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT).

The ScandiDos Delta4PT QA system is a quality assurance tool used to test radiotherapy treatment plans to help ensure that they will result in the desired dose distribution before actual treatments commence. It allows the users to quickly verify and approve the delivery of complex radiotherapy treatment plans by simulating treatments and generating real dose measurements in relation to a three-dimensional target volume.
