Our History 

For over 65 years, Varian’s Oncology Systems division has been dedicated to developing products and services with the goal of realizing a world without the fear of cancer. Originally founded in 1948 by Russell and Sigurd Varian, the company researches and develops innovative technologies like linear accelerators, Klystron technology, nuclear magnetic resonance, CT scanners, ultrasound and night vision technology. In the late 1960’s, Varian introduced the medical linear accelerator for radiation therapy. To date, more than 6,500 Varian linear accelerators have been installed at hospitals and clinics worldwide. 

Varian Oncology Systems is the world’s leading manufacturer of integrated systems for treating cancer and other conditions with radiotherapy, radiosurgery, proton therapy, and brachytherapy. Along with making an industry-leading treatment planning software for radiation treatments, Varian also develops informatics software for managing comprehensive cancer clinics, radiotherapy centers and medical oncology practices. 

Our History 

Varian introduces VitalBeam™ for affordable advanced radiotherapy. The new platform leverages Varian’s best technology, incorporating many innovations developed for the TrueBeam® platform to offer clinics a cost-competitive option for image-guided cancer treatment. 

Varian finishes installation of the company’s first complete ProBeam™ system for proton therapy at Scripps Proton Therapy Center in San Diego. Patient treatments commence. 

Varian introduces ProBeam Compact single-room proton therapy system. 

Varian acquires the assets of Velocity Medical Solutions, LLC, an Atlanta-based developer of specialized software for cancer clinics. The Velocity software platform is designed to enable data-driven clinical decision making.

Varian launches the Edge™ radiosurgery suite, and becomes the world’s largest oncology software provider with more than 3,300 Eclipse™ and ARIA sites around the world. 

The TrueBeam system receives a prestigious R&D 100 Award as well as a Red Dot Product Design award.
