New RayStation release to include TomoTherapy planning

RayStation® 6*, the latest release of RaySearch’s innovative radiation therapy treatment planning system, adds significant new functionality and a wide range of general improvements. Major additions include forthcoming support for Accuray TomoTherapy™ systems.

The new release sets RayStation apart as the only system to enable planning for both conventional linacs and TomoTherapy systems, giving clinics one point of control for all treatment planning needs. This is in line with RaySearch’s ambition to unify treatment planning as far as possible, eliminating the complications and additional steps that arise from using multiple software systems. All contouring work can be done in one workspace. It is also possible to plan combined treatments and accurately calculate combined dose. Clinical support for TomoTherapy systems is pending final validation and will be included in a service pack to be released in the near future.

Other RayStation 6 highlights include:

  • Monte Carlo dose calculation for proton pencil-beam scanning (PBS)
  • PBS planning with block apertures
  • Simultaneous co-optimization of multiple beamsets
  • MR-based planning, using MR-image as planning image
  • Auto-recovery

RayStation 6 also includes many other additions and general improvements, such as a new dose brush tool to adjust dose in user-specified regions, dose thumbnails in Plan Explorer, support for patients scanned decubitus left/right, the ability to change patient ID, improved prescribed fraction dose handling and display, as well as further enhancements to the GUI.

Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, says: “Our vision is to bring harmony to treatment planning. TomoTherapy planning is an important step, and we will shortly be adding support for further systems and technologies. Unified treatment planning brings many benefits to clinics, including simplified workflows and reduced demands on staff training.”
