Understanding Radiotherapy:
For the Patient and the Referring Physician

When it comes to the battle against cancer, information is one of the most important factors—both for the Patient and the Referring Physician. To better understand Radiotherapy and the treatment process, as well as recent advances in this field, Varian Medical Systems has created this series of interactive Educational Videos, which include a Glossary of Treatment Terms.
For the Patient:
Four different Patient Videos illustrate the treatment process, from start to finish, for Head & Neck, Breast, Prostate, and Lung cancers. Each downloadable video provides important step-by-step information in an easy-to-understand, interactive presentation. Because different treatment centers use different systems, Varian has made each video available on two of its radiotherapy systems, TrueBeam™ and Trilogy®.
For the Referring Physician:
The downloadable Referring Physician videos (available on both TrueBeam™ and Trilogy®) focus on the latest advances including IMRT, RapidArc, Gated Rapid Arc, and IGRT. They provide important educational information about these treatment techniques.
Varian Medical Systems focuses its energy on saving lives. By partnering with customers and others, the people of Varian develop leading solutions for advancing cancer treatment in radiotherapy, radiosurgery, X-ray imaging, and security. We continue to push back the boundaries of medical care and X-ray imaging, always with the emphasis on making life-saving treatments available to more people worldwide. Varian technology enables advanced forms of treatment such as RapidArc® radiotherapy, Image-Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT), Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS), and Intensity-Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT).
