The Apollo Hospitals Group has launched Varian’s TrueBeam radiotherapy system with Velocity, an intelligent software solution for interventional oncology at Apollo Cancer Institute, Apollo Health City campus, Hyderabad. The versatile TrueBeam is capable of treating a wide range of cancers with high accuracy and precision allowing oncologists or cancer specialists to treat many types of complex cancer cases. Patients also benefit due to the comfort, accuracy, and speed permitted by the TrueBeam system. The addition of the specialised software, Velocity, organises patient data and makes it available in one place to help clinicians make more informed treatment decisions.
TrueBeam has been used for treating patients in over 90 countries and every year around 1.5 million patients receiving treatment on a TrueBeam linear accelerator (LINAC). TrueBeam uses intelligent automation that not just simplifies the workflow, but also guides the specialists step-by-step through each radiotherapy treatment.
The Velocity software organises patient data and makes it available in one place, allowing the oncologist to access and compile treatment and imaging data from diverse systems for a comprehensive view of a patient's diagnostic imaging and treatment history.
