Fri, 04/13/2012 - 5:29am
COMMERCE, Mich.--(BUSINESS 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 Treatment Center 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 southeast Michigan.

DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital (www.hvsh.org) is one of 8 hospitals and one institute operated by the Detroit Medical Center (DMC), a leading regional health system. Founded in 1986, HVSH has more than doubled in size and greatly expanded its services to meet the needs of rapidly-growing Oakland County. It is ranked as one of the top hospitals in southeast Michigan for patient satisfaction.
