The Halcyon Varian Linear Accelerator is equipped with a state-of-the-art system that guarantees unprecedented quality and speed in radiotherapy treatments. «This is the first machine of this type installed in Italy – says Ivan Fazio, head of the Radiology unit of the Macchiarella nursing home in Palermo. – Thanks to the Halcyon system, this linear accelerator is able to guarantee performance 4 times faster than standard treatments, thus guaranteeing a significant reduction in waiting lists ». The Halcyon system has been designed to simplify and improve every aspect of Intensity Modulated Beam Radiation Therapy (IMRT) with a keen eye also on the humanization of care, as standardized workflows are easy to master, leaving physicians the ability to spend more time with patients. “For once – explains Vittorio Macchiarella, president of the board of directors of the Macchiarella Nursing Home – we can say that cancer patients will be able to count on a technological equipment for the moment unique in Italy”.
