JUPITER, Fla., Dec. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- In a promising development for cancer patients in Palm Beach County, The Medical Group of South Florida announced today that it has acquired the Halcyon™ system for image-guided radiotherapy to deliver advanced high quality cancer treatment. With the launch of the new Radiation Oncology department, The Medical Group of South Florida brought on Dr. Anthony Addesa as the Director of Radiation Oncology and he is starting treatments this week.
The Halcyon system, designed and manufactured by Varian Medical Systems, was engineered to deliver sophisticated, highly-targeted cancer treatments quickly with precision and accuracy. It is an advanced system with numerous features that make treatment comfortable for the patient, while also easy to use for the Radiation Oncology team. Treatments done with the Halcyon system can be completed in just a few steps, significantly less than required with older systems. Most importantly, the system incorporates "intelligent" automation that helps reduce treatment time.
"Treatments can be completed in about 5 minutes, so patients can get back to their lives with minimal disruption." said Dr. Anthony Addesa, Radiation Oncologist at the Medical Group of South Florida. "This system is well suited to handle the majority of cancer cases including prostate, breast, head & neck, lung, and many other forms of cancer."
In many cases, patients can be in and out of the cancer center in less than 15 minutes per day over a course of treatment. "The Halcyon system is a significant improvement in today's cancer care," said Dr. Anthony Addesa, the Director of Radiation Oncology at the Medical Group of South Florida. "Our patients will benefit from a machine that not only delivers vital treatments, but does so in a way that is less intimidating and more comfortable."
