TrueBeam® Radiotherapy System

High-Precision Radiotherapy Treatment

TruebeamThe TrueBeam® system brings leading edge cancer care to communities by positioning clinics at the forefront in the fight against cancer. Designed from the ground up to treat moving targets with advanced speed (typical treatment sessions are less than 15 minutes) and accuracy, the TrueBeam platform is a fully-integrated system for image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery. The TrueBeam system treats cancer anywhere in the body where radiation treatment is indicated. From fast imaging to accurate dose delivery, TrueBeam is designed to help clinicians navigate the complexities of cancer care with confidence. Sub-millimeter accuracy and comprehensive QA tools help ensure patient safety.

Options for a wide variety of cases.

Delivering numerous radiotherapy treatment techniques, TrueBeam provides clinicians with the opportunity to address a diverse range of cancer cases from cranial, head and neck, to lung and spine and tailor treatment plans for each patient. In the past, areas located in close proximity to critical structures or significant changes in anatomy during the course of treatment have made difficult targets for clinicians. TrueBeam addresses the technical challenges of these four common cancer types:

  • Head and neck
  • Breast
  • Lung
  • Prostate

Full range of treatment techniques supported

  • TrueBeam supports the full arsenal of radiotherapy treatment techniques available including:
  • 3D-Conformal Radiation Therapy – Provides a radiation dose pattern with generous margins to include extensive or difficult to image disease.
  • Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) – A delivery technique resulting in sharp radiation dose reduction outside of the well-defined target. This technique is important where the target is in close proximity to radiation sensitive healthy organs.
  • Intensity Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) –Imaging techniques such as specialized low energy beams and cone beam computed tomography are powerful tools to accurately define (and ultimately treat) the target while minimizing damage to neighboring healthy tissue.
  • RapidArc Delivery – An extension of the IMRT technique discussed above, RapidArc significantly reduces treatment time and often improves the radiation dose conformality to the target.
  • Respiratory-Gated Delivery – Accuracy of radiation dose delivery may be complicated by target motion associated with patient respiration. The TrueBeam permits tracking of the patients’ breathing pattern and allowing radiation delivery only during the breath phase associated with the proper target position. Respiratory-gated delivery can be utilized in conjunction with the delivery techniques described above.
