An advanced radiation therapy system built by Siemens Medical has begun operating at Vietnam's National Cancer Institute in Hanoi. Accompanying the Primus linear accelerator are the Lantis Oncology Management System and Simview Simulator. The Hanoi National Cancer Institute is the central training ground for Vietnamese physicians and physicists.

Primus was also the first linear accelerator to be installed as part of the U.K.'s New Opportunities Fund, which eventually will cover the cost of more than 50 new and replacement linear accelerators in that country. Primus was installed at the Northern Centre for Cancer Treatment in Newcastle upon Tyne. More of the accelerators are scheduled for U.K. installation in spring and summer.
