13/12/2013: GENERAL HOSPITAL PAPAGEORGIOU: The first public hospital with RapidArc® radiotherapy technology in Greece

PAPAPOSTOLOU Medical Equipment Center successfully completed recently the delivery and installation of  a VARIAN Medical Systems clinical linear accelerator of cutting edge technology in Thessaloniki General Hospital PAPAGEORGIOU, which is now the first public hospital Nationwide with the groundbreaking RapidArc radiotherapy technology. RapidArc had only been available so far at the private Metropolitan Hospital in Piraeus. 

RapidArc radiotherapy technology is a major advance from VARIAN Medical Systems - the world's largest producer of cutting-edge radiation therapy equipment (70% US market share, 60% global market share) - that improves dose conformity while significantly shortening treatment times. RapidArc delivers treatments two to eight times faster than our fastest dynamic treatments today and increases precision - a winning combination that enables physicians to improve the standard of care and treat more patients.

The whole project also included the facility’s planning, preparation, and radiation shielding operations. PAPAPOSTOLOU’s engineers, with their professionalism, experience and excellent coordination, completed the project one month earlier than forecasted, receiving congratulations from the hospital’s management and staff, who characterized the project’s implementation as flawless.
