Modern radiotherapy is designed to control tumors while minimizing exposure to the surrounding normal, healthy tissue.

Brachytherapy: Fighting cancer from within

Brachytherapy: Fighting cancer from within

Brachytherapy fights cancer through the placement of radioactive seeds or sources in or near a targeted tumor, usually on a temporary basis. This enables clinicians to deliver a high dose to the target area with minimal impact on surrounding healthy tissues.

Oncology: United by Purpose to Fight Cancer

Varian is the world’s leading supplier of technologies for managing and delivering treatment for cancer and other conditions. These technologies enable doctors to treat cancer using radiotherapy, radiosurgery, proton therapy, and brachytherapy.

Proton therapy: Delivering dose very precisely

Proton therapy: Delivering dose very precisely

Proton therapy uses a particle accelerator to generate and direct a beam of protons and deposit them accurately within tumors to spare adjacent healthy tissues and organs.

Radiosurgery: A non-invasive alternative to traditional surgery

Radiosurgery: A non-invasive alternative to traditional surgery

Radiosurgery is a highly precise, intensified form of radiotherapy. Rather than use scalpels or incisions, a focused high-intensity X-ray beam is used to target a tumor while minimizing dosage to healthy tissue.
