Varian Trilogy® system medical animation

View transcript

Dr. Bernard Eden: The Varian machine, it’s called a Trilogy machine allows us to do something called radiosurgery. So, now we can use this machine to focus the radiation on the tumor and on the tumor target and treat that tumor in one large dose of radiation, and spare the radiation going to your normal tissue surrounding that tumor. So this is a very powerful machine in order to deliver the radiation. Also, it allows us to do what’s called a cone-beam CT. We actually use the machine to take a CT scan of the treatment area. This allows us to be very accurate; we can make adjustments if necessary to make sure that the radiation is delivered accurately. So, we’re very excited about this machine and we think it’s going to help our patients tremendously.

Varian's Trilogy® system is a major advancement in cancer treatment technology. By using real-time diagnostic data, the sculpted radiation beam pinpoints the tumor and protects the surrounding healthy tissue, while minimizing the patient's time on the treatment table.

Trilogy® offers capabilities for providing Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy, Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), 3D Conformal Radiation, Fractionated Stereotactic Radiation Therapy, and Stereotactic Radiosurgery.
