“We are delighted to have been chosen by Apollo Hospitals for their groundbreaking introduction of proton therapy in India,” Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, said in a statement. “Apollo shares our view of the many benefits in having a single treatment planning system for all treatment machines, and our partnership will result in high efficiency and outstanding patient care. This installation reinforces our strong and growing presence in the APAC region and our commitment to supporting the widest possible range of treatment machines.”

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.

The agreement also includes modules for deformable registration, dose tracking, adaptive therapy and multi-criteria optimization.

“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.
