February 1, 2017 — RayStation 6, the latest release of RaySearch’s radiation therapy treatment planning system, adds significant new functionality and a wide range of general improvements. Major additions include forthcoming support for Accuray TomoTherapy systems.

RaySearch said the new release sets RayStation apart as the only system to enable planning for both conventional linacs (linear accelerators) and TomoTherapy systems, giving clinics one point of control for all treatment planning needs. All contouring work can be done in one workspace. It is also possible to plan combined treatments and accurately calculate combined dose. Clinical support for TomoTherapy systems is pending final validation and will be included in a service pack to be released in the near future.

Other RayStation 6 highlights include:

  • Monte Carlo dose calculation for proton pencil-beam scanning (PBS);
  • PBS planning with block apertures;
  • Simultaneous co-optimization of multiple beamsets;
  • Magnetic resonance (MR)-based planning, using MR-image as planning image; and
  • Auto-recovery.

RayStation 6 also includes many other additions and general improvements, such as a new dose brush tool to adjust dose in user-specified regions, dose thumbnails in Plan Explorer, support for patients scanned decubitus left/right, the ability to change patient ID, improved prescribed fraction dose handling and display, as well as further enhancements to the graphical user interface (GUI).

RayStation 6 is still subject to regulatory clearance in some markets.
