WIRE)–A new image-guided radiotherapy system will be dedicated on Thurs.,
April 19, 2012 at DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital. The TrueBeam™ system (www.variantruebeam.com) treats cancer more effectively
through highly precise targeting of lung, breast, prostate, and head and neck
tumors. Enhanced precision is achieved through the integration of imaging and
motion management technologies. In addition, the TrueBeam™ system requires a
shorter treatment time and reduces the patient’s exposure to x-rays.
The dedication will be held at 4 p.m. at the Natalie & Manny Charach Cancer
at Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital, located at 1 William Carls Drive in Commerce.
Physicians and community leaders will participate and the news media are
invited to attend. The new linear accelerator will be available for viewing and
photographs until 6 p.m. Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital’s
TrueBeam™ linear accelerator is the first in Oakland
County and one of only four in
