New RayCare and RayStation releases on show at AAPM
During 29 July–1 August, RaySearch will exhibit its latest advances at the 60th AAPM Annual Meeting in Nashville, US. The company will demonstrate RayCare 2A, the latest release of the groundbreaking oncology information system, and RayStation 8A, the new release of the innovative treatment planning system. The latest developments in machine learning technology* and online adaptive therapy will also be on show. Attendees are welcome to visit RaySearch at booth #321, and demonstrations can be booked now at: www.raysearchlabs.com.
The new RayStation 8A release brings a broad range of advances, including full planning capabilities for the TomoTherapy®* and Radixact® Systems from Accuray. RayStation now supports the TomoDirect™ delivery mode in addition to TomoHelical™. Other developments in RayStation 8A include support for TomoTherapy in Plan Explorer, improvements for proton and carbon ion* therapy and further integration with RayCare®, the next-generation oncology information system. All TomoTherapy and Radixact users now have access to advanced RayStation features, including multi-criteria optimization (MCO), adaptive planning and Plan Explorer. Demonstrations can be booked by visiting RaySearch's and Accuray's respective booths.
Improvements for proton and carbon ion therapy include automatic selection of range shifter for PBS machines and DICOM export of magnets in the lateral spreading device sequence for all ion treatment machines. Ion beam commissioning tools have also been refined for easier use, and carbon ion treatment machines are now supported in RayStation’s physics module.
New features and a range of general system enhancements from the newly released RayCare 2A will be demonstrated. The system now incorporates RayPACS, (picture archiving communication system), that makes it fast and easy to retrieve and share images. This unique managed PACS system makes it possible to tag images for efficient workflow automation. RayPACS can be used within RayCare or as a standalone PACS.
Other new features include task-based and rule-based scheduling, including calendar views and schedules for all clinic resources, and charge capture, a tool for automatically capturing and managing billable codes from tasks performed in the workflow.
