April 30, 2017 -- RayStation will be the treatment planning system for a new proton center in Zhuozhou, Northern China, situated close to Beijing. Around 2,000 patients per year will be treated at Zhuozhou, which will be one of the biggest proton centers in the world. The center will be equipped with IBA’s Proteus®PLUS multi-room system; the setup includes five treatment rooms, four isocentric-gantry treatment rooms and a fixed-beam treatment room.

The RayStation order, comprising eight clinical licenses, covers a range of advanced functionality, such as Monte Carlo dose calculation, robust optimization, proton PBS and DS planning, and fallback planning. Additional planning features for photon therapy will be included, such as 3D-CRT, IMRT, VMAT photon planning, and the system will also be used as a platform for research. Deployment of the treatment planning system is set to begin from August and clinical use will commence subject to regulatory clearance.

Olivier Legrain, CEO of IBA, says: “Our collaboration with RaySearch has enabled us to deliver a comprehensive solution that will give patients in Zhuozhou and the surrounding area access to the most advanced radiation therapy treatment available. IBA Proton Therapy systems, combined with RayStation, offer advanced functionality and unmatched usability to extend treatment possibilities.”

Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, says: “It is very exciting to be part of this project to establish the first large proton center in a hospital environment in China. Proton therapy is taking off in China, and we aim to be at the forefront of developments. Together with IBA, we are able to deliver a complete platform that will optimize workflows and enable precise and personalized treatment.”
