Varian IMRT treats Scottish patients
Scotland Cancer Centre’s radiology department, Beatson West in Glasgow, has implemented RapidArc image-guided intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) from Varian Medical Systems.

According to the Palo Alto, Calif.-based company, four head and neck cancer patients have been treated with the radiation technology at the centre following its implementation on two Varian Clinac medical linear accelerators, which the facility installed in 2005.

Treatments via RapidArc will include patients with prostate and brain cancers at the facility, said Varian.
