Varian TrueBeam Machine at the Breast Center

  The 114,400 square foot breast center is home to the Varian TrueBeam linear accelerator, which is recognized for its fast, precise and accurate radiation technology. The innovative system enables specially trained radiation oncologists from The James to perform image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery treatments on breast cancer patients. Compared to older radiation technologies, this system with the advanced motion management technology significantly reduces the amount of healthy tissue – including the heart and lungs – affected by radiation treatments.

  We have the newest technology with state of the art treatment machine for the most targeted, accurate treatment set-up and delivery. We offer a comprehensive approach to breast cancer with access to multidisciplinary care with surgical oncology, medical oncology, and plastic surgery.

  We individualize care for each patient. Treatment set up is personalized for each patient and different options are available for patients with left sided breast cancers to decrease radiation dose to the heart. The TrueBeam linear accelerator is used for fast and accurate treatment. 

  At the James Cancer Hospital, we offer:

  • 3D conformal treatment planning
  • Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)
  • Partial breast radiation
  • Hypofractionated radiation therapy
  • Stereotactic radiation therapy and radiosurgery
  • Prone breast radiation
  • Deep inspiration breath hold treatment.
