  23. 23. RapidArc. A revolution in speed.RapidArc. A revolution in speed. Could delivering a cancer treatment really take less time than a quick cup of coffee? Now it can. With Varian’s new RapidArc® radiotherapy technology, it can take less than two minutes to deliver sophisticated, IMRT-quality treatments in a single arc. That means you can reduce the time patients spend on the treatment couch, give each patient more focused attention, and even treat more patients per day. Along with faster delivery RapidArc’s single-gantry rotation may result in less leakage, less scatter, and lower overall peripheral dose than conventional IMRT treatments. Finding a cure for cancer is a long, slow process. Today, treatment delivery doesn’t have to be. Join the revolution today.
