The Icon Group has selected Varian Medical Systems to provide 10 TrueBeam medical linear accelerators to the cancer centers Icon operates throughout Australia. Icon will also use Varian’s software suite, including the Eclipse treatment planning system and Aria oncology information management system.
The TrueBeam accelerators synchronize imaging, patient positioning, motion management, and treatment delivery during a radiotherapy or radiosurgery procedure—treating cancer anywhere in the body where radiation treatment is indicated.
“Varian technology and services make it possible to deliver quality care rapidly and efficiently so that we can serve more patients,” says Icon Group CEO Mark Middleton. “These 10 new TrueBeam systems mean we can provide advanced cancer treatment to more patients across Australia.”
As part of the deal, Varian will install the systems over the next two years. Icon Group ordered five of the TrueBeam systems last year, and nine are currently in place.
