Olympic Medical Cancer Center has installed six 20- to 50-ton units that make up the Temporary Radiotherapy Vault (TRV) by RAD Technology Medical Systems.
RAD’s TRV system, a portable building equipped with a pre-installed linear accelerator and radiation shielding technology, provides an efficient and effective solution to manage patient treatments during an upgrade process.
RAD said the TRV allows for a transition of patient care as Olympic Medical Cancer Center decommissions and dismantles its previous linear accelerator and vault, and builds the vault required to house the Varian TrueBeam.
The RAD solution duplicates the cancer center’s processes in a compact and temporary package, allowing patient treatments to continue as the new treatment system is installed.
RAD president John Lefkus said the company has had success in installing radiotherapy vault systems for over five years in the UK, Canada, Mexico and the US.
"New patented technology now allows RAD to install comprehensive solutions for as little as 90 days," Lefkus said.
