Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
PALO ALTO, Calif. and NAIROBI, Kenya, April 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Varian (NYSE: VAR) today announced that The Nairobi West Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya is the first clinic in the country and in West, Central, and East Africa to begin treating cancer patients using the Halcyon™ radiotherapy system. The Halcyon system simplifies and enhances virtually every aspect of image-guided volumetric intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), including improved patient comfort and shortening the time from installation to first-treatment without sacrificing quality. The system is well suited to treat a majority of cancer patients, offering advanced treatments for lung, prostate, breast, head & neck, and many other forms of cancer.

The Halcyon system features a streamlined workflow that only requires nine steps from the start to the end of treatment compared to up to more than 30 steps with older technologies thereby reducing the total treatment time. To assist in the reduction of time and construction costs from installation to first patient treatment, Halcyon offers expedited commissioning, requires less shielding than traditional systems, can fit in the majority of existing small vaults, and can be installed in two weeks or less.
