Varian's RapidArc radiotherapy used in Europe

Radiation therapy firm Varian Medical Systems' image-guided intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) system, RapidArc, has been used by two hospitals in Denmark and the Netherlands -- its first use in Europe, according to the Palo Alto, CA-based firm.

Copenhagen's Rigshospitalet and Amsterdam's VU University Medical Center have used RapidArc technology to treat cancer patients with IMRT. The system delivers volumetric IMRT treatment in a single arc of the treatment machine around the patient, which means treatment is faster, according to Varian.
