Brachytherapy Systems

Brachytherapy is a type of radiation therapy where a sealed radiation source is placed next to or inside the area being treated. It is also important to women's health because it is a common treatment for cervical, breast, and skin cancer.

RaySearch Laboratories AB has launched the latest release of its widely adopted treatment planning system. RayStation 10B adds support for brachytherapy planning and a new GPU Monte Carlo algorithm, which typically cuts final dose computation times to less than five seconds.
