Shipments have commenced for the latest version of RaySearch’s flagship product, RayStation 8A, integrated with advanced features for radiation, proton and carbon ion therapies.

The treatment planning system is equipped with full planning capabilities for Accuray’s TomoTherapy and Radixact systems, and offers supports to TomoDirect treatment mode and TomoHelical functionality. In addition, the platform is designed to improve the efficiency of proton and carbon ion therapy and can be further integrated with RayCare, RaySearch’s oncology information system.

"This latest RayStation release is an important step forward. We are very pleased to expand our support for the TomoTherapy platform, giving all users access to innovative RayStation features,” Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, said in a statement. “We have also included some significant additional features for particle therapy, which is an important focus area for RaySearch. Many more exciting developments are in the pipeline for upcoming releases, and we will announce these in the near future."

Integrated with Plan Explorer functionality, RayStation 8A automatically generates a larger number of treatment plans for laying out clinical goals and combining treatment techniques and machines. This feature enables clinicians to optimize the use of treatment machines and increase the efficiency of treatment planning.

The system offers automatic selection of range shifter for PBS machines and DICOM export of magnets in the lateral spreading device sequence for all ion treatment machines whose commissioning tools are now refined for easier use. In addition, RayStation has now incorporated carbon ion treatment equipment into its physics module.

RayStation 8A also enhances integration with RayCare and offers access to multi-criteria optimization, adaptive planning and Plan Explorer among users of TomoTherapy and Radixact systems.

Additional improvements include the possibility of choosing independent isocenters, independent directions for robust optimization, the ability to view the full volume of dose volume histograms, and an improved user interface for DICOM export.

The capabilities of the system fall in line with RaySearch’s objective to eliminate complications and the complexity of additional uses of multiple software systems while establishing standard treatment planning guidelines for as many treatment delivery systems as possible.

Its release follows months of partnership established between the Swedish enterprise and other entities, including Heidelberg University Hospital, MD Anderson, Apollo Hospitals and Yamagata University Hospital.
