RaySearch Laboratories has received two new orders for its RayStation treatment planning system from a Canadian cancer care and research facility, and Clinique de Genolier, a clinic in Switzerland.
The research facility uses RayStation as a research tool for the development of a new treatment machine that combines a traditional linear accelerator with a Magnetic Resonance Imaging scanner.
The clinic will use RayStation for the clinical introduction of dose tracking, which is a tool that uses daily imaging data and advanced deformation algorithms to monitor the delivered radiation dose.
The RayStation enables the clinician to accurately calculate the accumulated dose taking into account changes occurring in the patient’s anatomy during the course of treatment.
RayStation integrates all RaySearch’s advanced treatment planning solutions into one flexible treatment planning system including multi-criteria optimization tools with full support for 4D adaptive radiation therapy.
It also includes functionality such as RaySearch’s algorithms for intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) optimization and highly accurate dose engines for both photon and proton therapy.
