Singapore: NYSE-listed Varian Medical Systems has been selected by the Icon Group to provide 10 TrueBeam medical linear accelerators for cancer centers Icon operates across Australia. Varian will install the TrueBeam systems in the Icon centers over the next two years and continue to service them under a multi-year agreement.
Varian's TrueBeam family of medical linear accelerators incorporate numerous technical innovations that dynamically synchronize imaging, patient positioning, motion management, and treatment delivery during a radiotherapy or radiosurgery procedure. In addition to the TrueBeam systems, Icon is also ordering Varian's software suite including the Eclipse treatment planning system and ARIA oncology information management system.
"This agreement is reflective of the strong relationship between our two companies and the high quality cancer treatment equipment and service Varian delivers," said Mark Middleton, CEO of Icon Group. "These ten new TrueBeam systems mean we can provide advanced cancer treatment to more patients across Australia, in addition to the five systems ordered last year and the nine currently in place. Varian technology and services make it possible to deliver quality care rapidly and efficiently so that we can serve more patients."
"We are honored Icon selected Varian systems and software to increase its ability to deliver precise treatments to a greater number of cancer patients across Australia," said Kolleen Kennedy, President of Varian's Oncology Systems business. "We will continue to work closely with Icon on the deployment of these systems and increasing patient access to high quality cancer care."
