Overview

Trilogy Radiation Therapy System

The Trilogy™ Stereotactic System from Varian Medical Systems is the most advanced, sophisticated machine of its type in the world.

As the leading image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) system, Trilogy marks the beginning of a new generation of cancer care. The versatile Trilogy system combines imaging and treatment technologies, and can be used to deliver the widest range of external beam radiotherapies: 3D conformal radiotherapy, IMRT, stereotactic radiosurgery, fractionated stereotactic radiation therapy and intensity-modulated radiosurgery for cancer and neurosurgical treatments.

Advanced imaging capabilities built into the system allow therapists to position patients for treatment with submillimeter accuracy. A respiratory gating system compensates for any tumor movement that occurs as a patient breathes.

The Trilogy system is powerful, and it can deliver radiotherapy doses at least 60 percent faster than conventional accelerators. This shortens the length of time patients need to spend undergoing treatment. In addition, the radiation beam is highly precise, allowing clinicians to deliver treatments with unprecedented accuracy.
