Apollo Hospitals will incorporate the RaySearch solution at the facility, which is set to begin treating patients in September 2018 in Chennai.

The center will be comprised as a multi-room configuration that consists of two gantry treatment rooms and one fixed-beam treatment room, and equipped with IBA’s Proteus Plus treatment delivery system.

Each room will be fitted with advanced pencil beam scanning and cone beam CT technology.

“Innovative technologies have been a hallmark of our cancer care protocols [and] with RayStation [we] reaffirm our continued investments into the best available care for our patients,” Preetha Reddy, vice chairperson of Apollo Hospitals Groups, said in a statement.

RayStation was recently chosen as the treatment planning system for a carbon ion therapy facility in Japan that is slated to be up and running by January 2020.

RaySearch did not respond for comment.
