WHAT: St. Luke’s Regional Cancer Center will celebrate the opening of its new linear accelerator with a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house. Construction for a vault to house the new accelerator at St. Luke’s Regional Cancer began in late 2017 and was completed in April.
The TrueBeam linear accelerator from Varian allows oncologists to treat patients through external beam radiation by delivering high-energy x-rays and electrons directly to a tumor. The TrueBeam system treats cancer anywhere in the body where radiation treatment is indicated, including lung, breast, prostate and head and neck.
