In addition to the Halcyon system, we are currently installing a Varian ProBeam Compact system at their site in Singapore’s international biomedical hub, Biopolis. We believe that, by providing the newest capabilities to healthcare providers, we can help make cancer a chronically managed disease. With both technologies in place, we are well on our way to seeing our vision of living in a world without fear of cancer, become a reality.”

The Halcyon system is suited to handle the majority of cancer patients, offering advanced treatments for some of Singapore’s most common cancers, including prostate and breast cancer.1
