At Varian, a Siemens Healthineers company, we envision a world without fear of cancer. For more than 75 years, Varian has developed, built, and delivered innovative technologies and solutions that help care providers around the globe treat millions of patients each year.

Today, as a Siemens Healthineers company, we support every step of the cancer care journey - from screening to survivorship. From advanced imaging and radiation therapy to comprehensive software and services, to interventional radiology, we are harnessing the power of our perspective while also pursuing clinical research to create a more efficient, and more personalized care pathway. Because, for cancer patients everywhere, their fight is our fight.

Varian Imaging Laboratory in Switzerland

The Varian Medical Systems Imaging Laboratory (iLab) in Baden-Dättwil is a research and development center in pioneering innovation. The iLab is a center of excellence for imaging, as well as optical monitoring and identification, treatment management, cybersecurity, and software technologies - offering an international perspective that drives innovation, implementation, and the integration of software and hardware solutions in the fight against cancer.

More than 400 highly qualified staff members develop key technologies for medical imaging and image processing in radiation oncology. The majority of this collaborative team consists of software developers, hardware engineers, computer scientists, physicists and other technical professionals engaged in the research and development of software and hardware components for the Varian product lines.

Varians latest solutions include:

  • Connected Imaging: Now available on Halcyon® and EthosTM radiotherapy systems, the HyperSightTM imaging solution seeks to connect the power of imaging inside and outside the treatment room. The HyperSight solution's cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology delivers larger images with better contrast, and is 10 times faster than conventional linear accelerator-based imaging systems, saving time for patients and creating the potential to significantly enhance the patient experience. With quality, precision, and speed, HyperSight allows clinicians to capture images during daily radiation treatment that can be used for replanning and adaptation to patient and tumor changes.
  • Advanced Motion Management: Patient movement during radiotherapy can significantly impact outcomes, as small movements such as breathing can affect the quality and precision of the treatment. The IDENTIFYTM system is designed to provide clinicians with greater confidence in knowing precisely where the patient is during a variety of radiation treatment delivery methods and techniques, including stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), and breath hold. IDENTIFY version 3.0,1, which has received CE mark, represents a purposeful step forward in surface guided radiation therapy (SGRT). This new version represents a connected future of SGRT through deeper integration of IDENTIFY within the Varian ecosystem. Clinicians will experience new safety features such as automated beam hold functionality on the TrueBeam® platform and process efficiencies that seamlessly complement established clinical protocols.
  • Integrated Software: Varian continues to build out its ecosystem of software solutions to power oncology workflows through patient-focused design, embedded intelligence, and enhanced connectivity. With a track record of innovation spanning more than two decades, the EclipseTM treatment planning system has continuously evolved to support clinicians and their practices. The latest version of Eclipse includes features designed to enhance accuracy in stereotactic radiosurgery treatments, improve conformity for complex stereotactic body radiotherapy cases, and help clinicians realize new possibilities in precision. In addition, Varian continues to expand the capabilities of the ARIA® oncology information system (OIS) to improve workflows, efficiencies, communication, and safety in the clinic. The company has also introduced InSightiveTM Gen2, its cloud-native, next-generation analytics solution, which empowers clinic professionals with actionable insights, customized alerts, and aggregation across multiple ARIA databases.
  • Customized Clinical Services: Through the Advanced Oncology Solutions (AOS) portfolio, Varian offers customized solutions and services that harness the power of technology and combine it with world class experts to help optimize clinical operations. These solutions, which integrate with and expand cancer centers' existing capabilities, help clinical teams realize their unique goals for optimizing, upgrading, or standardizing operations while implementing global best practices in cancer care.
