This project involved removing the existing Linear Accelerator and replacing it with a Varian TrueBeam system. The project included installing new casework and finishes in the treatment room and control room. The second installation incorporated the Brain Lab Exact Trac Xray System which has only been installed in a handful of other facilities in the U.S.

Design Features
Prefabricated modular walls were placed on either side of the Stand and Gantry to hide the modulator and UPS after the Linear Accelerator was in place. This method freed the area around the frame during construction and was installed dust free.
