RaySearch Laboratories AB (publ) shares news that Axim Nuclear & Oncology will be supplying treatment planning system RayStation®* to the radiotherapy market in South Africa.

The company currently supplies linear accelerators from Accuray, surface guided radiation therapy equipment from Vision RT, laser positioning equipment from LAP, medical physics QA from the Sun Nuclear Corporation and brachytherapy solutions from Xoft, a subsidiary of iCAD, Inc.
