RayStation® is gaining an ever-stronger foothold in the North American market. Several leading treatment centers selected RayStation, or extended the clinical footprint of existing systems, in the first quarter of 2017.
Some of the most important of these facilities include:
- Kennestone Hospital (a WellStar Health System facility) selected a full range of technologies, including Plan Explorer, an innovative tool to automatically prepare plans using several modalities to assess the best treatment approach.
- Sharp Memorial Hospital (an affiliate within Sharp HealthCare) selected a broad range of technologies.
- The Maryland Proton Treatment Center, in collaboration with the University of Maryland, extended its installation of RayStation, including additional clinical licenses for both photon and proton planning. RayStation will be used for pencil beam/IMPT planning on the Varian ProBeam system at MPTC.
Katja Langen, PhD, Associate Chief of Medical Physics at MPTC, says: “We aim to provide world-class proton therapy to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients. To be at the cutting edge, we need access to the most advanced and innovative treatment planning technologies. We are excited to add RayStation to our treatment planning portfolio.”

It is gratifying that so many leading centers are turning to RayStation for their treatment planning needs.”
