RayStation Selected for India’s First Proton Center

February 1, 2018 – Apollo Hospitals, Asia´s foremost integrated healthcare provider, has selected RayStation for a new proton therapy center in Chennai – the first such facility in India. The center will be equipped with IBA’s Proteus PLUS treatment delivery system in a multi-room configuration. The setup will comprise two gantry treatment rooms and one fixed-beam treatment room, each fitted with advanced pencil beam scanning and cone beam computed tomography (CT) technology.

Following an extensive review of the leading systems available, RayStation was selected as the treatment planning system for the new center, which is scheduled to treat its first patients in September 2018. The choice was motivated by RayStation’s comprehensive functionality and support for all major treatment delivery systems, and RaySearch’s position in proton therapy treatment planning. An important goal for Apollo Hospitals is to unify the treatment planning workflow. The agreement includes modules for deformable registration, dose tracking, adaptive therapy and multi-criteria optimization.
