TrueBeam is an advanced stereotactic radiation therapy system which delivers concentrated beams of radiation to tumors anywhere in the body. Each TrueBeam treatment consists of a beam of radiation, or collection of beams, that are generated by a linear accelerator housed inside the TrueBeam system.
While TrueBeam generates each treatment, it also allows pinpoint positioning and CT imaging using onboard imaging capabilities. The treatment beam can be targeted to a tumor from multiple angles to strike the target in a complete three-dimensional (3D) way. The goal is to deliver the lowest possible dose to the surrounding healthy tissue, while still delivering the maximum dose to the tumor.
