Mitchell Cancer Institute, US, selects RayStation for TomoTherapy

The University of South Alabama Mitchell Cancer Institute (MCI) in Mobile, Alabama, has selected RayStation* as its treatment planning system for the TomoTherapy ® System. The center also treats patients using a CyberKnife ®System and will use RayStation* for this in the future.

MCI’s radiation therapy service is equipped with state-of-the-art Accuray´s CyberKnife and TomoTherapy System, as well as a 64-slice PET-CT scanner. The center was initially interested in RayStation’s forthcoming support for the CyberKnife System, but quickly saw that the system could meet all of its treatment planning needs into the future, including the TomoTherapy System.

Dr. Weisi Yan, Director of the CyberKnife Program at MCI, says: “We were very impressed by the capabilities and user-friendliness of RayStation. As a leading-edge treatment center, we need the best possible technology in order to deliver outstanding care and maximize efficiency. RayStation will help us to achieve our goals.”

Hal Hopper, Manager of MCI’s Department of Radiation Oncology, says: “RayStation is fast and effective in planning treatments for all possible techniques we are likely to offer. It is much less labor-intensive than other systems we have used. With RayStation, the physician can choose the best course of treatment more quickly.”

Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, says: “MCI shares our vision of continuously advancing cancer treatment. We are very pleased to be able to meet their requirements for advanced clinical techniques as well as optimized workflows and use of resources.”
