January 30, 2017 — The Department of Human Oncology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has chosen RayStation as its next radiation therapy treatment planning system. The agreement was signed in late December 2016, and the purchase is planned to occur in two phases.
RayStation will be used for external beam treatment planning at the University of Wisconsin and satellite clinics. The agreement also covers affiliates and other partnerships. The purchase includes advanced features such as deformable registration, dose accumulation and adaptive radiation therapy planning. The university will also be an early investigator of TomoTherapy planning in RayStation, which allows for single-platform planning including the Accuray TomoTherapy machines.
John Bayouth, chief of radiation oncology physics at the Department of Human Oncology, said, “The university is constantly developing and extending its capabilities in the realm of radiation therapy treatment planning. Our intention is to explore plans that leverage the diversity of treatment delivery technologies in our system and determine the optimal approach for each patient.”
TomoTherapy planning is subject to regulatory clearance in some markets.
