UCSF expands with RayStation at Mission Bay
The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), has added RayStation-licenses for expansion at UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay, California. These licenses add to the existing wide area network infrastructure, as a new facility that will open in 2019, will use RayStation for treatment planning.
This is the third UCSF facility to use RayStation, in addition to the existing centers at UCSF Medical Center at Mount Zion and UCSF Helen Diller Medical Center at Parnassus Heights in San Francisco. Their vision is “Three campuses with one mission”– which will be put into practice by utilizing advanced technologies such as adaptive therapy, advanced automatic planning tools such as Plan Explorer, Fallback Planning and Autobreast planning.
Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, says: “UCSF has been a very important partner for us, both for RayStation as well as for RayCare*, our new oncology information system. We are excited to continue our collaboration and give them the best support as they introduce new centers and modalities in the San Francisco area.”
The order was received and mainly generated license revenues in Q3, 2018
