Hitachi Taps Elekta for Proton Therapy Software

September 10, 2009 - Hitachi has selected Elekta to provide workflow enhancing software for its PROBEAT proton therapy facility at West Medical Center in Nagoya, Japan.

Enabling the facility to manage patient data in a chartless, paperless
environment, the facility is the second Hitachi-equipped center to
implement MOSAIQ, Elekta's oncology information system (OIS) for cancer care.

A sophisticated treatment management solution, MOSAIQ manages planning, setup, verification, delivery review and analysis.* Integrated with MOSAIQ is the MOSAIQ electronic medical record (EMR), which supports the cancer care team by uniting diverse systems and devices.

Hitachi already integrated Elekta's MOSAIQ with its PROBEAT system at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and is now collaborating with Elekta at its Nagoya facility.

MOSAIQ is designed to support different types of radiation systems and
modalities, including Proton Therapy, Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) and Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) all in alignment with Elekta’s long-standing history of supporting multiple vendors and open systems to support new technologies.

*SEQUENCER is MOSAIQ’s Verify and Record module
