Named a 2017 Category Leader for Oncology Treatment Planning software, Eclipse software is in use at some 3,400 cancer treatment centers around the world.

The Eclipse software incorporates unique features such as RapidPlan knowledge-based planning, which makes it easier and faster to plan sophisticated cancer treatments like intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT), and RapidArc radiotherapy.

According to the 2017 Best in KLAS report, Eclipse scored above average in key areas, including: Sales and Contracting, Implementation & Training, Functionality & Upgrades, and Service & Support.

“We are honored once again to have Eclipse recognized as a Category Leader by KLAS,” said Kolleen Kennedy, president of Varian’s Oncology Systems business. “The Varian team spends countless hours working closely with oncology clinicians around the world to understand their changing needs so we can enhance the Eclipse software, and continue providing the best-in-class tools for fighting cancer.”
