RaySearch releases RayStation 7, including support For RayCare integration and Mevion Hyperscan

RayStation® 7*, the latest release of RaySearch’s innovative radiation therapy treatment planning system, adds new functionality and a wide range of improvements. Significant additions include support for HYPERSCAN technology from Mevion Medical Systems, and integration with RayCare*, the next-generation oncology information system shortly to be launched by RaySearch.

The functionality additions in the new release are in line with RaySearch’s ambition to unify treatment planning for as many systems as possible, eliminating the complications and additional steps that arise from using multiple software systems. This release also contains several enhancements to existing functionality that will contribute to improved workflows and planning efficiency.

Proton therapy is an important focus for RaySearch, and RayStation 7 contains some significant new features for the area. A key inclusion is support for Mevion’s HYPERSCAN pencil beam scanning technology. In addition, RayStation now supports uniform scanning for proton therapy systems from Mitsubishi Electric. Other proton therapy improvements include snout rotation for passive proton techniques and MLC collimation for PBS and passive techniques.

Further key refinements to RayStation functionality include the addition of robust constraints in MCO, simulated organ motion for robust optimization and evaluation, multi-atlas-based segmentation and conformal arc planning for photons.

In December this year, RaySearch will launch a groundbreaking new oncology information system, RayCare, which will integrate fully with RayStation. The new RayStation 7 release includes functionality to ensure a seamless experience for users of the combined systems.

Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, says: “We are working to support an integrated approach to cancer care. RayCare, which is about to be launched, is a huge leap for us in terms of unifying the main oncology disciplines. By adding support for Mevion’s HYPERSCAN technology and uniform scanning for Mitsubishi machines, we have taken another step towards our goal of harmonizing treatment planning. And we will add support for more systems in the near future.”
