The high-quality user experience and cutting edge features of RayStation made it an obvious choice for Apollo Proton Cancer Centre.
Together through this partnership with RaySearch, we aim to bring further benefits of high-definition imaging to the oncology continuum of care.
We have a strong focus on comprehensive cancer care at the Princess Margaret and uniting the different clinical disciplines is a key priority. RayCare will enable us to achieve this. It will also provide us with an integrated cancer informatics platform that builds on the significant advances we have made in this area. This is a collaboration that will shape the future of oncology systems.
“This collaboration agreement with RaySearch is important for the global advancement of ion beam therapy. Together we will take the technology forward to improve treatment for patients worldwide.”
“The implementation of the RayStation Monte Carlo dose engine has expanded our capability to serve more and a wider range of patients. For example, it enabled us to use larger range shifter to patient air gaps, which streamlined our process in the treatment rooms. In addition, the higher accuracy of the Monte Carlo dose engine allowed us to treat sites like lung, complicated head and neck, and breast with more confidence.
RayStation® can provide treatment planning tools for all kinds of radiation therapy so an advanced clinical partner, such as First Coast Oncology, that offers multiple treatment techniques can utilize our state-of-the-art software for a broad spectrum of cancer treatments.
RaySearch has been at the forefront of innovative treatment planning software and has now assembled all of the most technologically advanced tools for patient evaluation into one system.
