The versatile Trilogy system delivers image-guided radiation therapy as a standard, and can be used to deliver 3-D conformal radiotherapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, fractionated stereotactic radiation therapy, and intensity-modulated radiosurgery to both benign and malignant tumors. The Trilogy accelerator is designed to deliver a high dose rate for fast treatment times and to help ensure effective hypofractionation. As a result, patients can be treated accurately while treatment times are minimized.
