Varian claims wide deployment at radiotherapy centers
Varian Medical Systems this week announced that it has begun the 80th installation of the image guided radiation therapy (IGRT) product On-Board Imager. The company's IGRT systems include software modules for radiographic, fluoroscopic, and cone-beam CT imaging as well as automated repositioning software.

In addition to numerous installations in North America and Europe, On-Board Imager devices have been - or are currently being - installed at leading cancer centers in Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, and Japan, the company said.

There are more than 5,800 radiotherapy centers worldwide, and according to Varian the company equips 60 percent of them with its integrated and automated radiotherapy systems.
