RaySearch Laboratories AB (publ.) has been awarded a contract to supply its RayStation® treatment planning system (TPS) to Tayside Cancer Centre, Ninewells Hospital & Medical School in Dundee, UK.

Ninewells Hospital & Medical School is one of the largest teaching hospitals in Europe. It has a comprehensive regional cancer centre serving the Tayside region of Scotland. The centre offers all forms of cancer therapy and treats approximately 1400 new cancer patients annually.

The radiotherapy department at Ninewells will replace its current TPS with RayStation®, as its treatment planning system for conventional 3D-CRT treatments, as well as more advanced treatments, such as IMRT and VMAT.

The order includes sophisticated solutions, such as multi-criteria optimization, enabling a more efficient treatment planning process. Multi-criteria optimization is a highly intuitive tool that lets the clinician evaluate the impact of changing different treatment priorities in real-time, which has a large potential to speed up the time-consuming plan optimization process.

The radiotherapy department at Ninewells Hospital will also implement dose tracking and adaptive planning using the dedicated tools available in RayStation, as well as investigating biological optimization and evaluation.

“NHS Tayside made the decision to purchase RayStation® following a comprehensive NHS Scotland procurement and evaluation process. The process took into consideration TPS generic specifications, site specific requirements by Tayside Cancer Centre and the benefits the system will bring to the centre over and above the competing systems. We look forward to working with the RaySearch team to produce the best possible treatment plans for patients”, says Salam Souliman, Head of RT Physics at Ninewells Hospital.

“The UK is a highly important market for us. We established our UK sales and service office in the second half of 2013 and this has already resulted in the first customer order. Ninewells is an excellent clinic and we are of course thrilled that they have now become our first UK customer”, says Johan Löf CEO of RaySearch.
