October 18, 2016 — RaySearch demonstrated new features in the upcoming release of its proprietary treatment planning system, RayStation, during the 2016 annual meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), Sept. 25-28 in Boston. In addition, the company also exhibited its oncology information system, RayCare, which is under development and due to be launched in the second half of 2017.
The upcoming release of RayStation will include some new functionality. One of the highlights is treatment planning for the Accuray TomoTherapy and Radixact Systems. RayStation 6 will also include magnetic resonance (MR)-based planning and new developments for proton therapy planning, including Monte Carlo dose calculation.
RayStation has extensive automated planning features that help optimize workflows and create new treatment possibilities. Plan Explorer, for example, makes it possible to automatically generate a large number of high-quality treatment plan alternatives, saving valuable time and giving the clinician a wide range of options to consider.
The software is also designed to make adaptive therapy easy to implement and perform in clinical practice.
RayCare has been developed from the ground up by RaySearch to support the complex logistical challenges in modern, large-scale radiation therapy centers. RayCare integrates the high-performance radiation therapy algorithms available in RayStation and adds advanced features for clinical resource optimization, workflow automation and adaptive radiation therapy.
