Holzer Center for Cancer Care Installs Brand New, State of the Art TrueBeam Radiation Machine:
Precise, Accurate, and Fast!
The future of cancer care is now close to home.
The Open House at Holzer Center for Cancer Care will showcase the new TrueBeam Radiotherapy System.
The TrueBeam™ system is the latest in non-invasive radiation from Varian Medical Systems. TrueBeam is a powerful cancer treatment that will kill cancer cells with increased precision and accuracy while sparing healthy tissue.
TrueBeam introduces new possibilities for the treatment of cancers in the lung, breast, prostate, brain, head and neck, and more. With enhanced delivery of radiation, TrueBeam can personalize each patient’s cancer treatment.
Treatments that once took 10 to 30 minutes may now be completed in less than 2 minutes. Less time means a more comfortable experience for patients as well reduced chances of patient motion during the treatment, allowing less radiation exposure to normal tissues.
Best of all, this machine offers state-of-the-art Stereotactic Body Radiation (SBRT) and Radiosurgery (SRS) treatments. Just like the Cyberknife, this delivers pinpoint radiation in 1 to 5 outpatient treatments rather than the traditional 30-40 treatments. These treatments are similar to surgery but without cutting or hospital recovery time. Patients can now receive the best and fastest cancer treatment close to home.
