Quirónsalud Hospital Torrevieja introduces a new linear accelerator for the treatment of all types of tumours: Varian TrueBeam 2.7.

With this new accelerator, says Dr. Rosa Mª Cañón, head of the Radiation Oncology Department at Quirónsalud Torrevieja, “greater accuracy is achieved in the localisation of tumours, and therefore, more precise treatments”.

It is equipped with state-of-the-art 3D and 4D imaging systems that allow online visualisation and correction during treatment delivery.

The Varian TrueBeam 2.7 accelerator increases the speed of procedures tenfold, allows to select the most adequate energy for each tumour, location and treatment type, increases precision and protection of healthy organs and reduces the number of sessions, improving the patients’ quality of life.
