The Varian TrueBeam® LINAC treats cancerous tumors with higher-concentrated radiation doses than standard technology. This allows for patients to complete therapy with fewer fractions, or treatment sessions. This new LINAC features Align RT®, a surface-guided radiation therapy (SGRT) that uses 3D cameras and computer vision to monitor a patient’s breathing and ensure that treatment is administered safely and precisely.


“Installing the advanced Varian TrueBeam® linear accelerator at GenesisCare’s Rancho Mirage Radiation Oncology center means that our patients can access top-of-the-line radiation therapy right here in the Coachella Valley, without having to travel far from home,” said Dr. Ted Ling, radiation oncologist with GenesisCare.


“The machine helps us radiation oncologists by providing flexibility and precision and enabling us to address a wide range of patient needs. The sophisticated monitoring system helps ensure patient safety, and the highly targeted dosage means patients can adhere to their treatment plans with less disruption to their lives. Technology like this means GenesisCare can provide the best in personalized cancer care for the Palm Desert and Coachella Valley,” said Dr. Carolyn Barnes, radiation oncologist with GenesisCare.
