The greatest innovations come from collaboration, when clinics, universities and industry share knowledge, inspire each other and form partnerships to find new possibilities. RaySearch is committed to collaboration and knowledge sharing. We make a firm commitment to our partners, which includes a promise to ensure ongoing compatibility, for example by supporting hardware developments and new features into the future.
Accuray and RaySearch have a long-term collaboration agreement to develop and market fully-integrated solutions combining RayStation® and RayCare® with the TomoTherapy®, CyberKnife® treatment delivery systems. This enables greater flexibility for clinics with multiple treatment machines. Integration with RayCare brings the additional advantage of an independent oncology information system.
