Varian Eclipse and TrueBeam named Category Leaders in the 2019 Best in KLAS: Software and Services Report

Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Varian (NYSE: VAR) today announced its Eclipse™ treatment planning system and TrueBeam® treatment system have been named Category Leaders in the 2019 Best in KLAS: Software and Services Report by KLAS, an independent research firm specializing in monitoring and reporting on the performance of healthcare vendors. Eclipse was ranked first in Oncology Treatment Planning and TrueBeam was ranked first in Radiation Therapy.

Named a Category Leader for the sixth year in a row, Eclipse software creates an optimized radiotherapy treatment plan based on a physician's prescription, and information about the size, shape, and location of the tumor to be treated with radiation. The Eclipse software incorporates unique features such as HyperArc™ high definition radiotherapy (HDRT) treatment planning for intracranial radiosurgery, RapidPlan™ knowledge-based planning, and multi-criteria optimization (MCO). RapidPlan is designed to simplify and accelerate the planning process for sophisticated cancer treatments like stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), and RapidArc® radiotherapy. MCO allows clinicians to explore what happens when different clinical criteria are varied, such as the degree to which particular organs are spared versus coverage of the targeted tumor.
