“Previous approaches to arc IMRT therapy have been restrictive. Some are limited by machine design, and deliver treatments in the axial plane only, making it impractical to treat certain anatomical sites.” William F. Regine, MD, Chairman, Department of Radiation Oncology, University of Maryland School of Medicine, and Chief of Radiation Oncology, University of Maryland Medical Center

Introducing RapidArc. RapidArc™ radiotherapy technology by Varian Medical Systems makes it possible to deliver all the benefits of IMRT in dramatically shorter treatment times. RapidArc delivery uses Dynamic MLC, variable dose rate, and variable gantry speed to generate IMRT-quality dose distributions in a single optimized arc around the patient. Clinicians can now deliver continuously modulated dose to the entire tumor volume while sparing more normal, healthy tissue. RapidArc represents a major advance in radiation therapy. RapidArc. Revolutionizing IMRT.

A DVH illustrates the dose conformity and critical organ sparing achievable with RapidArc compared to equivalent target coverage using conventional IMRT. RapidArc planning, powered by the Eclipse™ treatment planning system, uses a unique algorithm to simultaneously modulate aperture shape, dose rate, and gantry speed at every gantry angle. This results in improved dose conformity for greater normal tissue sparing. Precisely conformal dose distribution and uniform target coverage increase the probability of tumor control without complications. 'The speed of MLC motion, gantry rotation speed, and...
