The Trilogy™ system, developed by Varian Medical Systems, represents the leading edge of radiation therapy technology.
Trilogy uses newer methods of imaging and forms of radiation therapy, making it possible to offer many types of treatment in one time and place.
Trilogy’s image-guided treatment:
- Provides localized images of your tumor at all times throughout treatment.
- Can generate CT scans from the treatment couch in only a few minutes.
Trilogy also delivers a number of radiation treatment options, including:
The treatment couch is moveable by remote control, which:
- Speeds up treatment.
- Maximizes the number of beam angles that can be used in treatment.
- Supports gating for tumors that shift within the body, such as tumors of the lung.
Triology presently is available only at the Mary Hillman Jennings Radiation Oncology Center at UPMC Shadyside.
