The Edge system by Varian delivers radiosurgery treatments quickly while monitoring and compensating for motion through the use of advanced imaging and real-time motion tracking technologies.
The system incorporates Varian's Calypso® "GPS for the Body" system for tracking tumor position in real time. Even tumors that move, such as lungs, breast and prostate, can be precisely targeted due to special tools that compensate for motion throughout a treatment.
The Edge system can complete sophisticated treatments in less than 15 minutes, compared with traditional treatments that typically take 30 to 60 minutes. This means less stress on the patient, which leads to quicker recovery times and better quality of life after treatment.
