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

ed and reshaped according to the size, shape, and position of the tumor in the body. As a result, the delivery of radiation is many times faster than with conventional treatment technologies.

According to Dr. Henson, because the treatment is fast, it is also easier on the patient. "Patients who had difficulty holding still for long periods of time, are now able to receive their treatment in less time, thereby allowing us to improve quality of care while simultaneously making patients more comfortable," she said.

Miguel Gomez, patient at Trinitas Cancer Center adds, "I am pleased that my treatment was changed to RapidArc. This new technology is faster and lets me complete each of my treatment sessions in under two minutes. Before I would have to lay still for close to half an hour and there were times it was uncomfortable and difficult for me. Now I am in and out quickly and back to my daily routine."

RapidArc treatments at Trinitas are accomplished using the Trilogy(R) linear accelerator from Varian. Trinitas was the first treatment center in New Jersey to offer patient treatments on this state-of-the-art equipment back in Fall 2005. The Trilogy machine was upgraded to deliver RapidArc treatments using a beam-shaping device called a multi-leaf collimator (MLC). This device has 120 computer-controlled mechanical "leaves" or "fingers" that move to create apertures of different shapes and sizes. During a RapidArc treatment, specialized software algorithms vary three parameters simultaneously: the speed of rotation around the patient, the shape of the MLC aperture, and the dose delivery rate.
