It has been a historic week for Beacon Hospital. We have treated the first patient in Malaysia on Varian Halcyon System. The patient treated was a 62 year old male diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Beacon International Specialist Centre is the 1st Southeast Asia hospital to introduce Varian Halcyon Radiotherapy to cancer patients. It can be used to treat head & neck, lung, breast, prostate, cervix and other forms of cancer.
This new radiotherapy machine improves treatment time, accuracy and patient’s comfort considerably. Depends on patient’s condition and case, treatment time can be as short as 1 minute plus.
