In a promising development for cancer patients in Middle Tennessee, the Sarah Cannon Cancer Center at TriStar StoneCrest Medical Center announced that it has acquired the TrueBeam system, an innovative system that enables a radically different approach to treating cancer with image-guided radiotherapy. The new equipment is at the Smyrna area hospital.

The TrueBeam system, from Varian Medical Systems, was engineered from the ground up to deliver more powerful cancer treatments with pinpoint accuracy and precision. It uniquely integrates new imaging and motion management technologies within a sophisticated new architecture that makes it possible to deliver treatments more quickly while monitoring and compensating for tumor motion, opening the door to new possibilities for the treatment of lung, breast, prostate, head and neck, as well as other cancers that are treatable with radiotherapy.
