Varian Medical Systems Powers Image-Guided Radiotherapy and Radiosurgery System
Committed to saving hundreds of thousands of lives a year, the innovators at Varian refuse to think small. That's why they chose Wind River® to provide the operating environment for their leading-edge TrueBeam™ radiotherapy and radiosurgery system.
Building upon the reliable performance of our VxWorks® platform, the Varian team created a system that is literally redefining cancer treatment—one capable of performing accuracy checks once every 10 milliseconds, and continuously monitoring more than 100,000 distinct data points throughout the entire treatment process. Because in the fight against cancer, no detail is too small. And no effort too great.
"Wind River has helped Varian establish a new level of synchronization between imaging, patient positioning, motion management, beam shaping, and dose delivery technologies," says Patrick Joda, vice president and general manager of worldwide customer support services at Varian Medical Systems. "Building upon the reliable performance of Wind River's VxWorks real-time operating system, we have created a system that is helping to redefine radiotherapy treatment."
