Varian Medical Systems (Palo Alto, CA, USA) has completed the acquisition of certain assets of Velocity Medical Solutions, LLC (Atlanta, GA, USA), a privately-held developer of specialized software for cancer clinics.

The acquisition includes software that enables clinicians to aggregate unstructured treatment and imaging information from different systems, and to use these data to make more optimized treatment choices. (Velocity products may not be available in all markets.)

Varian will continue development of this oncology software platform with the Velocity team in Atlanta. Financial terms of the acquisition are not being disclosed.

Varian Medical Systems, Inc. is a world- leading manufacturer of medical devices and software for treating cancer and other medical conditions with radiotherapy, radiosurgery, and brachytherapy.
