RaySearch Laboratories AB (publ) announces that La Clinique Générale-Beaulieu, a part of Swiss Medical Network in Switzerland, is the first center in the world to treat a patient using the Accuray Radixact® radiation treatment delivery system with RaySearch treatment planning system RayStation®* and oncology information system RayCare®*.
The first treatments were successfully carried out on October 14. The clinic is equipped with the most recent versions of RaySearch software, RayCare 5A and RayStation 11A. Radixact is equipped with the ClearRT™ helical kVCT imaging technology and connected to the Accuray iDMS® Data Management System.
La Clinique Générale-Beaulieu has been using RayCare and RayStation for a year. Step by step the systems have been implemented and integrated into daily operations and today the clinic manages all aspects of the treatment through RaySearch software. In addition to the advantage of having only one, seamless system this also gives the doctor a comprehensive picture of where the patient is in the treatment flow.
Swiss Medical Network is one of Switzerland’s two largest groups of private clinics. Within the network all types of cancers are treated, using cutting-edge technology and complex treatment methods. In 2019, as the first hospital in the world, Swiss Medical Network signed a multi-system, multi-clinic agreement for the purchase of Accuray radiation therapy delivery systems as well as RaySearch’s treatment planning system and oncology information system.
Professor Oscar Matzinger, medical director of radiation oncology at Swiss Medical Network, says: “We are happy to announce that we have successfully treated our first patients using RayStation and RayCare with a Radixact machine. The achievement is a result of a productive and valuable collaboration between Accuray, RaySearch and our clinic.”
Johan Löf, Founder and CEO, RaySearch, says: “We are very pleased to hear that the first treatment with Radixact and RayCare has been successfully carried out at this world-class center. It is an important proof of concept that RayCare can be used as the sole oncology information system together with Accuray machines. This makes the achievement of significant value not only for our mutual collaboration with Swiss Medical but also for potential collaborations with other clinics with a similar machine set-up around the world and, above all, for patients in need of radiotherapy treatment.”
