TrueBeam Treatment at Kennedy

TrueBeam Treatment at Kennedy

Patient and OncologistImagine being treated for cancer with less fear and anxiety. Imagine being treated in less time with pinpoint precision, without a surgical incision. Imagine making cancer the victim. TrueBeam from Varian. Fast. Powerful. Non-invasive.

TrueBeam was designed with many features that can improve the overall patient experience. With shorter treatment times and quieter operation, TrueBeam provides for a more comfortable environment for patients. Enhanced communication technology enables a constant interaction between the patient and the therapist who operates the equipment. Three closed-circuit television systems enable the therapist to monitor the patient at all times. Music can be played during treatment, helping to increase patient comfort.

TrueBeam is a game-changing leap in innovation in radiotherapy technology.  

The TrueBeam system for radiation treatments is not appropriate for all cancers. Treatment times may vary. Typical side effects of treatment are area specific and include, but are not limited to skin changes, fatigue, diarrhea, hair loss, nausea and vomiting, urinary and bladder changes, or trouble swallowing. Serious side effects may occur. Ask your doctor if TrueBeam is right for you.
