​​​Giving Patients the ‘Edge’ in Cancer Care

Varian Edge delivers radiation accurately to hard-to-reach cancers.

The Varian Edge™ makes it possible for the Kelsey-Seybold Cancer Center team to treat a wide range of cancers noninvasively – without anesthesia or surgery. This includes cancers of the brain and spine. It can be used for primary as well as metastatic cancers to help deliver precise, accurate and fast treatment while avoiding the surrounding healthy tissue.


The Edge is used for advanced, outpatient radiosurgery (surgery without a knife). It combines state-of-the-art imaging, targeting and treatment in one comprehensive system. It also offers the highest radiation dose rate in the industry for faster treatment in briefer time frames.

The Edge operates with submillimeter accuracy and real-time tracking to accurately target and destroy tumors. It performs accuracy checks every 10 milliseconds and shuts off if it detects the patient’s position has shifted during treatment. With each noninvasive procedure lasting only minutes, patients are able to quickly resume daily activities.

The Varian Edge pinpoint​s the tumor and delivers highly focused treatments in fewer sessions and at a noticeably fast rate while minimizing the dose received by surrounding healthy tissues. ​Watch our video to learn more.​
