Radyalis Releases Next-Generation Monte Carlo Proton Therapy Planning

July 22, 2014 — Radyalis is showcasing its high-performance Monte Carlo dose calculation product for proton applications simultaneously at the 2014 annual meeting of the American Association of Physics in Medicine (AAPM) in Austin, Texas.

The company’s work in large-scale optimization and high-performance computing enables clinicians to utilize the high-accuracy benefits of Monte Carlo at unprecedented speeds for proton therapy dose modeling. The Monte Carlo engine changes radiotherapy workflow as the most complex patient treatment plans can be evaluated for efficacy and biological safety with high confidence in a matter of minutes.

The technology combines new algorithmic and software architecture advances for very high parallel efficiency on customer's existing hardware, including single and multiple node installations, clusters and cloud platforms, for both Linux and Windows environments. Radyalis software is highly portable and very flexible, and designed to be integrated via a customer API or into a treatment planner.

Without compromise, Monte Carlo supports a robust set of features. All relevant physics are accurately modeled. Simulation of complex geometries, NIST materials and multiple beams are fully supported. Radyalis provides sophisticated dosage statistics including particle distributions, variability, fluence and linear energy transfer, further guiding the radiation physicist.

The fast and accurate Monte Carlo dose calculator is a key enabler for next-generation treatment plan optimization, robust planning, quality assurance and ultimately real-time adaptive planning. The speed and accuracy of Radyalis' Monte Carlo product provides significant ROI advantages for equipment manufacturers, treatment centers and research organizations.
