RaySearch Releases RayStation 7 Radiotherapy Treatment Planning System

New release includes support for upcoming RayCare oncology information system integration and Mevion Hyperscan proton therapy technology

RaySearch Releases RayStation 7 Radiotherapy Treatment Planning System

December 19, 2017 — RayStation 7, the latest release of RaySearch’s radiation therapy treatment planning system, adds new functionality and a wide range of improvements. Significant additions include support for Hyperscan technology from Mevion Medical Systems, and integration with RayCare, the next-generation oncology information system (OIS) shortly to be launched by RaySearch.

The functionality additions in the new release are intended to unify treatment planning for as many systems as possible, eliminating the complications and additional steps that arise from using multiple software systems. This release also contains several enhancements to existing functionality that will contribute to improved workflows and planning efficiency.

RayStation 7 contains some significant new features for proton therapy treatment planning. A key inclusion is support for Mevion’s Hyperscan pencil beam scanning (PBS) technology. In addition, RayStation now supports uniform scanning for proton therapy systems from Mitsubishi Electric. Other proton therapy improvements include snout rotation for passive proton techniques and MLC collimation for PBS and passive techniques.

Further key refinements to RayStation functionality include the addition of robust constraints in MCO, simulated organ motion for robust optimization and evaluation, multi-atlas-based segmentation and conformal arc planning for photons.

Later this December, RaySearch will launch the new RayCare OIS, which will integrate fully with RayStation. The new RayStation 7 release includes functionality to ensure a seamless experience for users of the combined systems.
