Varian Medical Systems Exhibits Latest Technologies and Products Designed to Improve Speed and Precision of Radiotherapy at ESTRO 2007
Date:9/7/2007

BARCELONA, Spain, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR), world leader in advanced radiotherapy solutions for treating cancer, is demonstrating its full range of technologies and products aimed at improving the speed and precision of radiotherapy at the 2007 European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ESTRO) meeting in Barcelona, Spain from September 8th-13th.

Among the new product introductions on show will be the Smart Segmentation(TM) feature for Varian's Eclipse(TM) treatment planning system. Smart Segmentation is the world's first fully automatic software tool that identifies and outlines organs and other structures of interest within diagnostic images of the thorax and male pelvis. Up to now, identifying structures to be irradiated or protected during radiotherapy treatments had to be done by hand. Eclipse will also display another intelligent planning tool that automatically selects the optimal treatment beam angle for each patient. Additionally, Varian will demonstrate 4D planning software to account for organ motion during precision radiotherapy treatments.

Varian will also be discussing the new high-definition multi-leaf collimator (HD120 MLC). This high-definition collimator, with increased resolution utilizing smaller leaves, will be available with the company's Trilogy(R) Tx medical linear accelerator and addresses the unique needs of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT).

Along with the market-leading On Board Imager(R) device for clinically-practical image guided radiotherapy (IGRT), Varian will also be demonstrating its Trilogy and Clinac(R) linear accelerators, its Acuity imaging device for planning and sim
