MedStar Georgetown proton center selects RayStation
The proton center at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital will utilize RayStation for planning on the MEVION S250i Proton Therapy System with HYPERSCAN when the facility opens for treatment later this year. The RayStation treatment planning system will enable the utilization of advanced IMPT capabilities that are unique to the HYPERSCAN technology, including multi-leaf collimation with Mevion’s Adaptive Aperture.
The combination of RayStation and Mevion’s HYPERSCAN technology will enable clinicians at MedStar Georgetown to plan and treat patients with the advantage of very sharp field edges and minimized radiation to critical structures.
Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, says: “The addition of support for HYPERSCAN in RayStation fits well with our commitment to supporting all modalities and vendors in the field of radiation therapy. With our ever-expanding toolset, we believe we are uniquely qualified and positioned to advance cancer treatment in order to improve outcomes for patients and support our customers and industry partners.”
Joe Jachinowski, CEO of Mevion Medical Systems, says: “Mevion is looking forward to working with MedStar Georgetown and RaySearch to implement HYPERSCAN technology clinically. Our collaboration with RaySearch has been very productive and we are excited that everything has come together as planned.
