The main advantages of the system are ease, precision, and speed. Thanks to its pinpoint accuracy and advanced imaging capabilities the TrueBeam system can be used to treat many different types of tumors.

The new system was put into service on March 24. Since then, the Oncology Department has treated 21 new patients for a total of 193 treatments.
