Why Does UF Health St. Johns Radiation Oncology Center Use Versa HD™?

UF Health St. Johns Radiation Oncology is committed to providing the highest quality cancer care. Versa HD was developed by Elekta, a human care company pioneering significant innovations and clinical solutions for treating cancer. Versa HD allows us to safely and efficiently deliver conventional radiation therapies to treat a broad spectrum of tumors throughout the body, while also enabling treatment of highly complex cancers that require extreme targeting precision. The expanded capabilities of this innovative technology present new opportunities to provide state-of-the-art cancer treatment to more patients in our community.

With Versa HD, UF Health St. Johns Radiation Oncology center will open the door to innovative cancer treatments for patients in the surrounding community.

What Makes Versa HD™ so Different?

Versa HD leverages the latest technology advances to enable sophisticated approaches to traditionally challenging cases. The system’s patented technology provides superior conformance to tumor size, shape and volume, allowing UF Health St. Johns Radiation Oncology clinicians to administer higher dose rates that can enhance treatment effectiveness while protecting critical structures such as the heart, spine, or bladder. The result is highly precise treatments with shorter treatment times, and the ability to offer highly advanced therapies while minimizing the impact of treatment on our patients’ quality of life.

Shortened treatment times can also improve patient comfort, particularly for our older patients who may find it difficult to remain in one position over extended periods of time. The risk of movement by patients who are receiving treatment near important structures is minimized, as well.

Patients can experience a more confident and relaxing treatment setting courtesy of Versa HD’s streamlined shapes and ergonomic features, combined with low mechanical noise and ambient lighting effects. This revolutionary linac uniquely supports us in providing highly individualized cancer treatments specific to each patient’s needs.
