India Cancer Institute installs Varian RapidArc
Clinicians at the Yashoda Cancer Institute in Hyderabad, India, have performed radiotherapy treatment using RapidArc technology from Varian Medical Systems.

The Palo Alto, Calif.-based Varian said its RapidArc technology makes it possible to deliver image-guided intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) two to eight times faster than is possible with conventional IMRT. RapidArc delivers a precise treatment in single or multiple arcs around the patient.

Yashoda Cancer Institute is a 200-bed comprehensive cancer research and treatment center operated by Yashoda Hospitals; the facility provides healthcare to 7,000 cancer patients every year.
