RayStation’s unrivaled computation speed can radically transform your treatment planning process. As the computation time is measured in seconds rather than minutes, you can efficiently produce several competing treatment plans to assess different tradeoff situations and avoid interruptions. This has been shown to contribute to overall plan quality.
SPEED AND ACCURACY YIELDS PLAN QUALITY
“Since we started using RayStation for IMRT planning, not a single plan has ever failed IMRT QA. It was not the case with
the planning systems we used before.”

“Through vigorous testing of the photon dose algorithm in RayStation we found excellent agreement to measured data across four linacs, three head configurations, and two vendors. All data was found to be well within the published guidelines.”

“Electron Monte Carlo offers anatomically based treatment planning which accurately accounts for in-patient inhomogeneities with fast dose computation times. The ability to combine and visualise eMC dose distributions with photon-based external beam techniques will facilitate improved plan optimisation in combined therapies and boost techniques.”

“The Provision Center for Proton Therapy was the first proton therapy center to treat patients using the RayStation treatment planning system. The data required by the RayStation pencil beam dose calculation algorithm was measured during three 8 hour beam shifts and was sent to RaySearch to prepare the beam data model for our system. The RayStation system modeled the data near perfectly. We are very happy with the data modeling and the exceptionally good agreement between measured and calculated data for our uniform scanning beam delivery system.”

“MedAustron regards itself as an interdisciplinary and nationwide Austrian centre. It will specialize in cancer treatment with ions other than protons, the research and development of this new therapy and non-clinical research with ion and proton irradiation.
Even amongst other similar centres, MedAustron is an unique project. There nearly is no off-shelf equipment for our specific requirements, concerning neither hard- nor software. One of the biggest challenges is therefore to find suppliers for all the needed equipment, who are able and willing to develop suitable devices according to our specific requirements.
We chose RayStation because it's the most innovative system available and it's able to fulfill the high demands we make on our dose delivery system. From the first moment on RaySearch showed the flexibility and high competence, alike, necessary for such a demanding partnership.”
Managing Director at Medaustron, Austria.
“RayStation's high calculation speed provided an immediately noticeable improvement over the centre's previous treatment planning system. In the PACE prostate VMAT SABR trial, RayStation cut the time for optimization and calculation of final dose from 40 minutes to just 3 minutes. This high speed also makes it possible for the planner to perform a reoptimization while the clinician is still present, ensuring a highly effective process.”
