TrueBeam is a radiotherapy device, a linear accelerator, manufactured by Varian. The system dynamically synchronizes imaging, patient positioning, motion management, and treatment delivery. It is a versatile platform which can be used for all forms of advanced radiotherapy modalities including Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT)and Image Guided Radiosurgery (IGRS), Intensity-Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT), Volumetric Intensity Modulated Arc Therapy (Rapid Arc) and Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) along with conventional and 3-D conformal radiotherapy.[1] The new technology is currently functioning in only a handful of centers around the world, such as the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, University Hospital Zurich in Europe, John Stoddard Cancer Center, Stanford University in USA and Hôtel-Dieu de France, University Hospital of Saint-Joseph University in Beirut, Lebanon, The Luckow Pavilion, Paramus, New Jersey.[2]
