GREENWICH, Conn. --  Greenwich Hospital has  inaugurated a new era in the fight against cancer with the acquisition of a new radiation therapy system.

The TrueBeam linear accelerator from Varian was recently unveiled during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Smilow Cancer Hospital Greenwich Hospital campus at 77 Lafayette Place.

The new equipment treats moving targets quickly and accurately, leading to shorter treatment times while reducing the possibility of movement during therapy and patient discomfort.

“This technology positions Greenwich Hospital at the forefront in the fight against cancer,” said Ashwatha Narayana, a radiation oncologist. “Our goal is to provide patients with the highest level of cancer care close to home.”

The advanced radiation therapy system can treat cancer virtually anywhere in the body.

The equipment features a large field size, streamlined imaging and patient positioning tools that enable more flexibility than ever before.

The TrueBeam platform is a fully integrated system for specialized procedures like image-guided radiotherapy, stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiotherapy.

Its automated workflow uses intuitive visual cues to enhance safety.
