Varian's ProBeam® system stands apart from other proton therapy systems in that it uses pencil beam scanning with its unprecedented precision. Clinicians can therefore treat larger and more complex tumors, while at the same time sparing more healthy tissue. Only pencil beam scanning, and not passive scattering delivery of proton therapy, can deliver intensity-modulated proton therapy (IMPT). For more than a decade, Varian's research and development in proton therapy has focused exclusively on this advanced form of pencil beam scanning. The use of proton therapy—partnered with the accuracy of pencil beam scanning—offers optimal tumor control.
