Introducing The Edge™
SNCC is excited to announce The Varian Edge™ radiosurgery suite as its latest technology in leading cancer care. The Edge™ represents a paradigm shift in radiation technology for the city of Lincoln and is the most advanced linear accelerator available today. The Varian Edge™ radiosurgical suite is the latest addition to our non-invasive cancer treatment arsenal.
Radiosurgical treatments have been increasing in demand due to the ability to localize and target tumors more accurately in a shorter treatment course, while minimizing the dose to normal structures. The Edge™ is a state-of-the-art linear accelerator coupled with real-time motion management to ensure fast, precise delivery of treatment. The 6-degree freedom couch allows for accurate patient positioning.
The Edge™ has the highest dose rate in the industry allowing for faster treatments. The quality and safety system of The Edge™ performs accuracy checks every 10 milliseconds to ensure quality of care. This sophisticated equipment allows for radiation to be tailored to the specific needs of each patient and it is the most acute, non-invasive comfortable option available today. Key features of the Edge™ include:
- High definition surgery without a knife or anesthesia
