September 14, 2017 -- Radiation therapy firm Varian Medical Systems held its first education workshop for radiotherapy practitioners from across Algeria at a facility in Algiers.

Participants from seven regional hospitals attended the workshop, which focused on advanced prostate and head and neck treatment techniques. The event was led by Dr. Philippe Maingon of the Hôpital Universitaire La Pitié-Salpêtrière in Paris and Dr. Lysian Cartier of the Institut Sainte Catherine in Avignon.

The first Varian linear accelerator was installed in Algeria more than 20 years ago, the company said. Varian now has 30 systems operating across the country.
