Holland Proton Therapy Centre treats first patient using RayStation
Holland Proton Therapy Centre (HollandPTC) has started treating patients using RayStation as the treatment planning solution, in combination with the Varian ProBeam® System and the Varian ARIA® oncology information system.
HollandPTC was the first proton therapy center established in the Netherlands. RayStation was selected over other treatment planning alternatives following an extensive tender process in 2016. RayStation received the highest assessment in several key areas, including adaptive therapy, connectivity, automation and scripting, user experience, and plan optimization. The agreement between RaySearch and HollandPTC includes both clinical and research licenses.
Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, says: “We are glad to see that HollandPTC has completed its first patient treatment using RayStation. Proton therapy is an important area of focus for RaySearch, and we have designed RayStation to deliver on its therapeutic possibilities. I look forward to a long and successful relationship with HollandPTC, both for the clinical parts and also for research efforts.”
HollandPTC is an independent center for proton therapy and a partnership between Erasmus University Medical Center, Leiden University Medical Center and the Delft University of Technology. In addition to patient care, the center will provide education and conduct an extensive research and development program.
