At Texas Cancer Specialists, we use Varian TrueBeam linear accelerators to treat cancer without surgery using powerful, state-of-the-art radiotherapy individualized for your particular cancer. During treatments that take just a few minutes each day, the TrueBeam can deliver high doses of radiotherapy with tremendous accuracy, targeting tumors precisely while minimizing exposure of the surrounding healthy tissues and organs. This accuracy allows treatment even in sensitive areas such as the abdomen, liver, lung, breast, and head and neck.
The precision of the TrueBeam system is measured in increments of less than a millimeter. This accuracy is made possible by the system’s sophisticated architecture, which synchronizes imaging, patient positioning, motion management, beam shaping, and dose delivery, performing accuracy checks every ten milliseconds throughout the entire treatment. In addition to its impressive technical specifications,TrueBeam has also been designed with patient comfort in mind. It operates quietly while providing constant two-way communication with the therapists who operate the system, and who can visually monitor and see the patient through closed-circuit television systems at all times.
