At the time, Varian was developing a completely new radiotherapy system, the Halcyon™. The end product had to be smaller, affordable and easy to use, even for non-professionals. All features that were intended to meet the increased need in developing countries.
The design and performance of the Pulse Modulator, which is the power source, and one of the most vital parts of a radiotherapy system, played an important role in enabling Varian to meet its tough requirements.
ScandiNova’s pulse modulator met the specific requirements of the new treatment system and provided the highest level of reliability, accessible service, and minimized consumables. Varian, a Siemens Healthineers company, decided to leave the old technology behind. The small size and low weight have simplified the implementation of this high-end treatment machine and allows quick and easy installation of the entire system.
