Trinitas Comprehensive Cancer Center Now Offering Cancer Patients Faster, Ultra-Precise Radiation Using New RapidArc Technology
Date:1/13/2009

ELIZABETH, N.J., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- At the end of December, Trinitas Comprehensive Cancer Center became one of the first cancer treatment centers in the state of New Jersey to offer cancer patients treatment using RapidArc(TM) radiotherapy technology from Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR). RapidArc is a fast, precise form of treatment that is delivered two to eight times faster than is possible with conventional radiation therapy technologies. By delivering radiation doses more quickly and with great accuracy, Trinitas clinicians can simultaneously improve the quality of care while making patients more comfortable.

"We're very pleased to offer this technological advantage to our patients at Trinitas," says Gary S. Horan, FACHE, President and Chief Executive Officer of Trinitas Regional Medical Center. "This technology makes Trinitas Comprehensive Cancer Center a regional leader in offering cancer patients access to treatments that can improve outcomes by doing a better job of sparing surrounding healthy tissue while delivering more powerful radiation doses to tumors."

"Rapid Arc makes it possible for us to deliver highly-precise intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) treatments quickly," said Dr. Lisa Henson, Chair of Radiation Oncology at Trinitas. "These treatments target tumors accurately while sparing the surrounding healthy tissues."

Rapid Arc is an image-guided intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) treatment that takes about 90 seconds to deliver once a patient has been positioned for treatment, which is markedly faster than other forms of treatment, which can take up to 20 minutes or longer per session. During a RapidArc treatment session, which is completed with one or multiple rotations of the treatment machine around the patient, the radiation beam is continually shap
