Varian, a Siemens Healthineers company, has announced that China Medical University Hospital in Central Taiwan treated its first patient with Ethos™ therapy, making it the first hospital in Taiwan and within the Greater China region to use Ethos therapy for advanced cancer treatment.
The Ethos therapy system combines an image-guided radiation therapy powerhouse with adaptive capabilities in one system, creating workflow efficiencies that benefit both patient and clinician.
This solution, powered by artificial intelligence (AI), is designed to deliver an entire adaptive treatment in a typical 15-minute timeslot, from patient setup through treatment delivery.
Incorporating multi-modality image guidance, Ethos therapy provides the ability to personalize the patient's treatment based on their anatomy and position at the time of treatment. The goal is to better target the tumor and potentially improve overall outcomes with a reduction in dose to healthy tissue.
