WASHINGTON, DC, USA, December 28, 2023 / -- Team BestGlobal (TBG) and Best Theratronics, Ltd. (BTL) Ottawa, Ontario, Canada announce the world's very first GammaBeam Teletherapy System with IMRT, SBRS combined with Active Rx Treatment Plans with a built-in electronic Multi-Leaf Collimator (MLC).

In 1951, Theratronics, Ltd., a Crown Corp. of Atomic Energy of Canada, Ltd., AECL invented the world's very first Cobalt/GammaBeam Teletherapy System for the treatment of cancer. Canada Post issued a stamp in recognition of this achievement.

Theratronics, Ottawa was acquired by Dr. Krishnan Suthanthiran, President/Founder of TBG, in May 2008 and renamed Best Theratronics, Ltd. It was then merged with Nomos Corporation, Pittsburgh, PA (acquired by TBG in September 2007) and renamed Best Nomos. Best Nomos is known for its inventions of IMRT/Serial Tomotherapy, and Active RX and SBRS Treatment Planning Programs for curative cancer treatment. Their inventions are widely used globally for treating curative cancer and for palliative care.

BTL and Best Nomos have collaborated to introduce the world's first GammaBeam 100-80 CM Equinox Teletherapy Unit, which comes equipped with a built-in MLC. This unit will be installed in a cancer center located in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India. The center will be established as a non-profit society under the Best Cure Foundation and is expected to open in the second quarter of 2024.

This new GammaBeam Teletherapy Unit is scheduled to ship in mid-January 2024 and to be installed in March 2024. The High Specific Activity Cobalt-60 Source will be loaded soon after, and validation for the Indian Regulatory Authority—Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB)—approvals will begin to treat cancer patients 24/7.

Please join Dr. Suthanthiran in congratulating BTL and Best NOMOS Teams in accomplishing this breakthrough in the promotion of GammaBeam Teletherapy Systems worldwide.

BTL GammaBeam Teletherapy Units can be operated using batteries and they are available 24/7 at a significantly lower cost. These units can treat more than three times the number of patients in a 24-hour period compared to Linacs, and seven days a week. In many countries, such as Nigeria with a population of about 200 million, there is often only one working teletherapy machine, which is a GammaBeam Teletherapy Unit manufactured and supported by BTL and Best Nomos.
