A high-precision cancer treatment technology, the Varian Edge, is now available for the first time in Southwest Florida to treat patients with complex cancers, according to a news release. 21st Century Oncology, who recently joined the GenesisCare Network, has introduced two new non-invasive cancer treatment technologies at its Cape Coral center, the Varian Edge
and Varian Halcyon
systems. The Varian Edge, an advanced linear accelerator, allows clinicians to deliver highly targeted doses of radiation (known as stereotactic radiation therapy) to tumors of the lung, prostate, brain, spine, liver, pancreas, and other areas of the body. The Varian Edge system will also be used to treat other common cancers with highly advanced radiotherapy, including breast, uterine, esophageal, rectal and other cancers. In addition to the Varian Edge system, the Varian Halcyon System is now available at Cape Coral, also allowing clinicians to target tumors with pinpoint accuracy. Nationwide, GenesisCare is investing in 10 linear accelerators in 100 days to 21st Century Oncology facilities in the U.S., increasing patient access to world-class cancer care.
