These teams collaborate with cancer centers to help them realize their unique goals for expanding, upgrading, or standardizing operations while implementing global best practices in cancer care.
"Through our AOS offerings, we've been leading the way in melding innovative technology with clinical expertise to help address these challenges," commented Chuck Lindley, Vice President of AOS, at Varian. "With Aspekt Solutions, we can support more oncology centers with a holistic approach to addressing today's challenges while also preparing for the fast-evolving future of cancer care."
