    RaySearch to show new software developments at AAMD Annual Meeting


    June 11-15, RaySearch will be exhibiting at the American Association of Medical Dosimetrists (AAMD) annual meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana. The company will demonstrate the innovative features in the latest release of its treatment planning system, RayStation®. In addition, RaySearch will give preview demonstrations of its forthcoming oncology information system, RayCare®*, which is due to be launched in December 2017. Attendees are welcome to visit RaySearch at booth #216, and demonstrations can be booked now at www.raysearchlabs.com.

    RaySearch will also host treatment planning workshops on Tuesday 13 June, giving participants an in-depth, hands-on session with the software. The morning session is a general overview of the entire treatment planning system, while the afternoon session targets more advanced features such as deformable registration, treatment adaptation, Plan Explorer and more. 

    Clinical presentations
    Several RayStation customer clinics will make presentations during the meeting, including the following:

    Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Proton Therapy Center

    New features in RayStation 6
    New functionality and a wide range of general improvements will all be on show at AAMD. Major additions include support for Helical TomoTherapy*. RayStation will be the only system that enables planning for both conventional linacs and Accuray TomoTherapy systems, giving one point of control for all treatment planning activities. 

    RayStation 6 also introduces simultaneous optimization of multiple beam sets for SMLC, DMLC and VMAT, and MR-based planning, which makes it possible to use an MR image as the primary data set for photon therapy. Other highlights include Monte Carlo dose calculation for proton pencil beam scanning (PBS) and PBS planning with block apertures.
