Varian Selected for Major Radiotherapy IT Project

July 30, 2007 - Varian Medical Systems' advanced treatment planning and information management software was selected as part of a major project to integrate all radiotherapy activities in Stockholm, Sweden, in an effort to unify the Karolinska, South and Danderyd Hospitals, which recently merged under the title of Karolinska University Hospital.

Varian's ARIA information and image management software and Eclipse treatment planning software will be installed over the next year. Hundreds of cancer patients are treated daily on 12 linear accelerators and brachytherapy afterloaders at the three sites. Most of the hospital network's treatment machines are Varian Clinac accelerators. The new Karolinska University Hospital currently deploys a variety of treatment planning, information management and verification software systems, all of which will be replaced by Varian's ARIA and Eclipse systems over the coming year.
