Rigshospitalet, a cancer center in Copenhagen, Denmark, has ordered two Novalis Tx radiosurgery platforms with its suite of accessories and will upgrade an existing BrainLAB Novalis device to the new generation Novalis Tx.

All three machines will be equipped with Varian's RapidArc radiotherapy technology for image-guided, intensity-modulated radiotherapy treatments. They will also include the BrainLAB ExacTrac X-Ray 6D imaging system and the Varian On-Board Imager for precise patient positioning, Varian said.

The latest investment at Rigshospitalet is part of a Denmark-wide strategy to ensure cancer patients receive their first radiotherapy treatment within four weeks of diagnosis, according to the Palo Alto, Calif.-based company.
