RaySearch Laboratories AB will be showcasing the latest oncology software innovations at ASTRO 2021, to be held in Chicago, October 24-27

 The latest versions of RayStation (11A) and RayCare (5A) were released in May 2021. A new feature in the RayStation release is dose planning for Accuray’s CyberKnife system for radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT).

October 22, 2021 — The latest versions of RayStation (11A) and RayCare (5A) were released in May 2021. A new feature in the RayStation release is dose planning for Accuray’s CyberKnife system for radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). RayStation provides support for optimization with the three different types of collimations – fixed cones, Iris Variable Aperture and Incise Multileaf Collimator – as well as all CyberKnife techniques for Synchrony real-time motion synchronization. The release also includes innovations in organ segmentation using deep learning with model support for organs in the head and neck, thorax, and pelvis regions. 

Further, the exhibition will feature brachytherapy dose planning with automatic reconstruction of treatment channels combined with powerful dwell time optimization, ultra-fast Monte Carlo dose calculation for protons, multicriteria optimization (MCO), Plan Explorer and many other advanced features of RayStation. 

The latest RayStation version also provides expanded integration with the oncology information system RayCare and the treatment control system RayCommand, which now enables the clinical workflow to be made even smoother.

In RayCare 5A several features have been added to promote clinical efficiency and improve safety by reducing the number of manual routine tasks. The new features include support for managing radiation therapy prescriptions and a new whiteboard that provides an overview of patient treatments including information on readiness for treatment.

RayIntelligence automatically extracts patient and treatment data from RayStation for visualization and analysis of patient populations. The first version of RayIntelligence was released in December 2020, and at ASTRO 2021 the latest version (1C), which has enhanced functionality for analyzing and comparing treatment plans for patient populations, will be presented.

At the booth, Accuray and RaySearch will show a joint preview of a smooth and efficient workflow for online adaptive radiotherapy for delivery on the Radixact treatment delivery system. By taking the patient’s current situation into account, utilizing the high quality ClearRT images, real-time target tracking and the efficient and smooth adaptive replanning framework of RayStation and RayCare, the delivery of the optimal treatment of each specific patient every day is enabled. In the fully automized adaptive workflow a daily plan is optimized based on the daily image and by utilizing RaySearch’s advanced features such as deep learning segmentation and GPU-based dose computation.

During ASTRO, on Oct. 23, RaySearch and Accuray are also hosting an online adaptive preview at Marriott Marquis. Read more and sign up here.
