What Is Truebeam?

The TrueBeam system is the newest generation of radiation therapy technology, considered a cancer treatment revolution. Truebeam, the latest generation beam therapy technology that stands out in cancer treatment, is used in Radiation Oncology to irradiate tumors in every part of the body. TrueBeam; It is used as four different radiotherapy techniques: IMRT with IGRT, Rapidarc, SRT, and SRS.

TrueBeam, which can be used in treating all cancers requiring radiotherapy, can be irradiated to tumors smaller than 0.5 mm. TrueBeam is primarily used to treat small-volume tumors adjacent to risky organs in the brain and the whole body. System; Many technical innovations are used with robotic imaging, automatic patient positioning, motion management, and wholly restructured control features to synchronize therapy dynamically. It is generally used successfully in the treatment of tumors in hard-to-reach areas. The part that distinguishes TrueBeam from similar technologies is that its ability to increase a high dose rate can deliver higher doses in a much shorter time. In this respect, it offers high-performance treatment processes that significantly reduce the session, duration, and number.


What Types Of Cancer İs TrueBeam Used To Treat?

TrueBeam, the newest generation radiation therapy technology, which is revolutionary in cancer treatment, is used in Radiation Oncology to irradiate tumors in every part of the body. TrueBeam has the features to use radiotherapy and radiosurgery together. TrueBeam is used in all tumors in the body together with intracranial. TrueBeam technology has a practical irradiation feature in large tumors that can be seen in every body part.


What Makes The Truebeam Device Different From Other Radiotherapy Devices?

TrueBeam incorporates many technical innovations with a wholly reconfigured control system for a system equipped with robotic imaging, automatic patient positioning, motion management, and dynamic synchronization of therapy. TrueBeam stands out, especially in treating lung, breast, prostate, and spinal cancers, with its respiratory monitoring system. It also enables the “Gated” RapidArc technology, which constantly rotates around the patient, synchronizing the dose with the imaging and compensating for observing the tumor movement. Another feature of the system is that with simultaneous imaging with the treatment, it can be checked whether the beam targets the tumor precisely or not. Benign and malignant brain tumors, Acoustic Neuroma, Cavernoma, Pituitary Adenomas, Meningioma, Liver Tumors / Metastases, Lung Tumors / Metastases, Craniopharyngioma, Pediatric Brain Tumors, Gliomas, Prostate Cancer, Spinal Tumors / Metastases Trigeminal Pancreas Tumors, Adrenal Tumors, Adrenal Metastases It is used in the treatment of Head and Neck Cancers and Oligometastases.


Can The Treatment Be Applied To Patients Of All Ages?

As it can be applied to patients of all ages, it provides a significant advantage, especially in patients who are inconvenient to receive anesthesia due to advanced age.

How Is It Applied?

All treatments are administered under computer control in TrueBeam, which is among the linear accelerator devices used in radiotherapy. The patient lies on the movable table of the device, which rotates around the patient continuously, synchronizing the dose and imaging process it gives. Since irradiation is performed by monitoring respiratory movement, it can directly provide a high treatment dose to the area where the tumor is located.

What Are The Advantages Of TrueBeam?

  • It is more accurate.
  • It makes point shot irradiation the treatment focus.
  • Faster
  • It reduces the session time.
  • Provides a higher-performance treatment process
  • It reduces the number of sessions.
  • It is a technology that can comfortably offer Radiotherapy and Radiosurgery options on the same platform for the patient.
