I had a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I expected a negative experience because of the nature of the visit. Surprisingly, it was an extremely positive experience from the front desk, nurses, and the doctors.

I am very fortunate to be a patient of The Medical Center of South Florida in many ways. My son is also a patient and they maintain all necessary correspondence with our medical health no matter where we travel. We could not be more pleased!

Halcyon Work Flow Technology

The most advanced technology for treating cancer has arrived at The Medical Group of South Florida. Our radiation oncology program is the first in Palm Beach County to utilize the Halcyon radiotherapy system. The Halcyon system is the most recent advancement from Varian. Its leading-edge technology precisely targets the tumor while providing a treatment environment that's quieter and more comfortable than ever before.

  • Noninvasive

    Radiotherapy through Halcyon is not surgery, so there are no incisions, and there is no post-surgery recovery period.

  • Fast

    Halcyon was designed to provide treatment quickly and efficiently. Imaging can be completed in about 15 seconds, and treatments are typically completed in just nine steps.

  • Comfortable

    Since Halcyon uses a quiet, water-cooled system, the treatment room can be kept at a much more comfortable temperature. Advancements like a spacious opening, ambient lighting, and low treatment couch position work to keep you as comfortable during treatment as possible.

  • Precise

    Thanks to Halcyon’s leading-edge, dual- layer multileaf collimator (MLC)—the device that shapes the beam—the tumor can be targeted with pinpoint precision.

  • Comprehensive

    Halcyon can treat most disease sites, including the brain, the head and neck, the prostate, the lungs, and the breasts.

  • Safety Conscious

    Patient safety is of utmost importance. To create a closer connection between you and your therapist during treatment, Halcyon includes an integrated camera and intercom, so your therapist can watch over you and speak with you at all times.

Treating Cancer with Halcyon, Step By Step

01

Visualization

Visualization

Imaging is important in order to visualize the tumor and accurately target it. Detailed 3-D images enable your doctor to know its exact size, shape, and location in your body. This information helps determine the appropriate dose of radiation and how to deliver it most effectively.

02

Planning

Planning

Imaging is important in order to visualize the tumor and accurately target it. Detailed 3-D images enable your doctor to know its exact size, shape, and location in your body. This information helps determine the appropriate dose of radiation and how to deliver it most effectively.

03

Delivery

Delivery

The radiation is delivered by a machine called a linear accelerator (linac), which rotates around you as it projects the beam. With Halcyon, the rotating beam gantry is enclosed within the opening (the bore) so you won’t see anything rotating around you.

04

Follow Up

Follow Up

After your treatment, you’ll see your doctor for follow-up care. During this time, he or she will monitor your progress. Take this opportunity to ask your doctor any questions about your treatments, the status of your health, and any side-effects you may be experiencing.
