French private hospital group selects RayStation as sole TPS
Institut de Cancérologie de Bourgogne has chosen RayStation as their sole treatment planning system (TPS). The group consists of three centers, placed in Auxerre, Dijon and Chalon-sur-Saône.
The clinics represented by Institut de Cancérologie de Bourgogne are all privately owned, and since 50 percent of the French treatment planning market is privately owned, the order is an important step for RaySearch into this large share of the market in France.
RayStation will replace the existing TPS for the group and will function as their sole system. The possibilities to work with adaptive therapy and the automated features in RayStation were both important qualities in the selection. Other factors for Institut de Cancérologie de Bourgogne to choose RayStation was to optimize their treatment planning process, the speed of the system, and the calculation accuracy while improving the user experience. The order includes the adaptive package, features for automated breast planning and multi criteria optimization (MCO).
Dr François Rocher, Radio-Oncologist Associate at Institut de Cancérologie de Bourgogne, says: “The choice of RayStation was obvious due to its many qualities, advanced functionalities, its capacity to be innovative as well as to accommodate the needs of a network of sites like the Institut de Cancérologie de Bourgogne. The speed of which RaySearch can integrate a new machine, great support and responsiveness from the team as well as the possibility to collaborate on development projects have also been key to the choice. We hope for future collaborations contributing to the development of the products, and we are particularly interested in RayCare, which we are following with great attention.”
Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, says: “I’m glad that Institut de Cancérologie de Bourgogne has chosen RayStation. It is a center that strives to stay at the forefront of innovation and adopts new technology. The private market is very exciting, and I believe that RaySearch can be a game-changer in this segment. I look forward to the collaboration with Institut de Cancérologie de Bourgogne.”
The majority of this order has been delivered and will generate revenue in the fourth quarter of 2018.
