Varian Medical's TrueBeam system ordered by Grupo COI

An advanced radiotherapy treatment system, fully equipped for treating cancer with advanced, image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery, has been ordered by Clínicas Oncológicas Integradas, or Grupo COI, for installation at the group's Botafogo site in Rio de Janeiro. The TrueBeam system, which was designed to treat tumors with great accuracy and speed, is the first to be ordered by a treatment center in South America, and is slated to be installed by the end of 2013 pending final approvals by the relevant regulatory agencies in Brazil. The TrueBeam system is made by Varian Medical Systems.
