State-of-the-Art Linear Accelerator

Karmanos Cancer Institute at McLaren Northern Michigan added the latest Varian TrueBeam technology featuring HyperArc and Identify in 2021. The TrueBeam delivers high doses of radiotherapy with tremendous speed and accuracy, targeting tumors precisely while minimizing exposure of the surrounding healthy tissue and organs. Thanks to special technology that activates the beam only when the tumor is in an optimal position for treatment, the new linear accelerator can precisely target tumors that account for internal motion. The precision of this technology allows our Karmanos Cancer Institute at McLaren Northern Michigan team to treat some of the most challenging cancer cases.
