Al Amal Hospital in Doha, Qatar, is replacing its four-year-old linear accelerators with Trilogy and Clinac iX devices from Varian Medical Systems.

The new equipment, ordered in February and scheduled to be installed in May, will enable clinicians in Qatar's only radiation therapy center to begin treatments using RapidArc for delivering image-guided intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT).

Varian said its Clinac and Trilogy accelerators can target beams at a tumor while continuously rotating around the patient.
