This agreement also extends the strategic partnership between GenesisCare and Elekta to include a programme to advance the ongoing clinical development of adaptive therapy
based on real-world evidence.
Also, a major clinical benefit of using RayStation, RayCare and RayCommand together is that they enable true online adaptive therapy
The order consists of high-end technologies used in advanced proton therapy treatment planning, such as pencil beam scanning, automatic planning tools, deformable registration, dose tracking, adaptive therapy
and photon planning tools for comparative planning.
It combines unique features such as unmatched adaptive therapy
capabilities, multi-criteria optimization, market-leading algorithms for IMRT and VMAT optimization with highly accurate dose engines for photon, electron, proton and carbon ion therapy.
Karen Sue Newberry is the Executive Director of Blue Water Warriors, which is a nonprofit that provides wounded veterans with innovative adaptive therapy
programs on the ocean that help veterans achieve critical recovery goals away from military hospitals.
Furthermore, it enables unique opportunities for adaptive therapy
by improved tracking of the proton path, starting from the patient skin through to the target tumor volume.
Freedom Concepts, a leading innovator in adaptive therapy
bikes, alternative seating, and mobility devices, exhibited their Chill-Out Chair fabric line, The Aloha Series.
This RayStation installation will include modules for carbon pencil beam scanning with robust biological optimisation (using both the MKM and LEM models), deformable registration, dose tracking and adaptive therapy
This RayStation purchase, financial details of which were not available, comprises of a comprehensive set of features, including multi-criteria optimisation, VMAT, IMRT, electron planning, fallback planning, automated breast planning, adaptive therapy
, scripting and contouring.
The system will incorporate new software tools for adaptive therapy
taking organ motion during and between treatment sessions into account.
