At the core of our cancer center’s technology is Varian’s iX linear accelerator with a 120 leaf MLC installed at the center in February 2006. The iX uses digital imagery to shape radiation beams into the dimensions of a tumor, allowing a high dose of radiation to be delivered to the malignancy without harming vital organs.
With the iX’s reliable and precise delivery, patient comfort is maximized helping to reduce side effects such as pain, burning, nausea and fatigue.
Varian, the manufacturer of the iX radiation machine used at Mojave Radiation Oncology Center, has decades of experience designing precision radiation treatment equipment.
