Varian reports proton therapy milestone in Russia

Radiation therapy firm Varian Medical Systems said the PTC St. Petersburg Center of Nuclear Medicine of the Sergey Berezin Medical Institute successfully completed its first patient treatment using the vendor's ProBeam proton therapy system.

The inaugural treatment at Russia's first dedicated proton therapy treatment center was performed on a pediatric patient for a brain tumor, Varian said. Approximately 1,000 patients each year are expected to receive image-guided intensity-modulated proton therapy in the two-treatment room, according to the firm.
