The TrueBeam™ STx
The TrueBeam™ offers many benefits to patients including:
- Reduced treatment times and high dose
- Pinpoint accuracy which helps to protect healthy tissue
- First machine in the country to have a ‘6 Degree of Freedom’ couch
- More comfortable treatment for patients allowing uninterrupted treatment if the patient moves. Normally treatment has to stop immediately, and the patient or the beam moved, to avoid potential damage to healthy tissue.
TrueBeam™ can treat tumours in any part of the body with sub millimetre accuracy and sessions are often faster than those delivered by conventional linear accelerators
Find out more about the TrueBeam™ STx at the London Radiotherapy Centre’s website.
