Varian treats 1st U.K. patient with HyperArc radiotherapy

Varian Medical Systems treated its first patient in the U.K., and among the first in the world, using HyperArc high-definition radiotherapy (HDRT).

The 71-year-old eye cancer patient was treated at the West of Scotland Cancer Center in Glasgow. Clinicians were worried about potential cataracts or damage to the patient's eyesight through using conventional radiotherapy techniques, but they reduced dose by 70% using HyperArc HDRT.

HyperArc uses Varian's TrueBeam and Edge systems for advanced noncoplanar stereotactic radiosurgery treatments.
