RayStation Selected for London's Charing Cross Hospital and Hammersmith Hospital

Treatment planning system will be employed at U.K. hospitals for 3-D-CRT, IMRT, VMAT and other adaptive planning applications

RayStation Selected for London's Charing Cross Hospital and Hammersmith Hospital

January 30, 2018 — Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London, U.K., has chosen RayStation as the sole treatment planning system for two sites in London: Charing Cross Hospital and Hammersmith Hospital. RayStation was selected following a thorough evaluation of all potential treatment planning systems on the market.

The Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust operates five hospitals in London, plus a range of community health services. Its radiation therapy services are provided at Charing Cross Hospital and Hammersmith Hospital. RayStation will replace two different treatment planning systems currently in use at the hospitals.

The two hospitals will use RayStation for all radiation therapy treatment planning activities, as well as all pre-treatment virtual simulation. RayStation will replace the hospitals’ current standalone system for virtual simulation. The purchase comprises a broad range of functionality, including three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3-D-CRT), intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), multi-criteria optimization (MCO), automated breast planning and adaptive planning.

RayStation integrates all RaySearch’s advanced treatment planning solutions into a flexible treatment planning system. It combines features such as MCO tools with full support for 4-D adaptive radiation therapy. It also includes functionality such as RaySearch’s algorithms for IMRT and VMAT optimization, and highly accurate dose engines for photon, electron, proton and carbon ion therapy.
