Varian inks Stockholm pact
Radiotherapy device and informatics manufacturer Varian Medical Systems said it has been selected as part of a project to integrate all radiotherapy activities in Stockholm, including those at the Karolinska University Hospital.

The Palo Alto, Calif.-based Varian said its Aria information and image management software and Eclipse treatment planning software will be installed over the next year in an effort to unify the Karolinska, South, and Danderyd Hospitals, which recently merged under the title of Karolinska University Hospital. Most of the hospital network's treatment machines are Varian Clinac accelerators, according to the company.
