RaySearch Laboratories has won a contract to supply its RayStation treatment planning system to Tayside Cancer Centre, Ninewells Hospital & Medical School in Dundee, UK.
This will be the first clinical installation of RayStation in the United Kingdom. Ninewells offers all forms of cancer therapy and treats approximately 1400 new cancer patients annually, states RaySearch. The radiotherapy department at Ninewells will replace its current TPS with RayStation®, as its treatment planning system for conventional 3D-CRT treatments, as well as more advanced treatments, such as IMRT and VMAT. The order includes sophisticated solutions, such as multi-criteria optimization, enabling a more efficient treatment planning process.
“The UK is a highly important market for us. We established our UK sales and service office in the second half of 2013 and this has already resulted in the first customer order. Ninewells is an excellent clinic and we are of course thrilled that they have now become our first UK customer”, commented Johan Löf CEO of RaySearch in a press release.
