RaySearch Laboratories: Breakthrough Order for RayStation® in Asia


4/12/2012 10:18:19 AM

STOCKHOLM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News: RaySearch Laboratories AB has received an order for its RayStation® treatment planning system from Samsung Medical Center in Seoul, South Korea. Samsung Medical Center (SMC) was founded in 1994 and is a teaching hospital affiliated with Sungkyunkwan University's school of medicine. SMC has a large cancer center that treated more than 3,600 patients with radiation therapy in 2010. The center offers a wide range of advanced treatment options within radiation therapy and is also currently building a new facility for proton therapy. Proton therapy is the most sophisticated form of radiation therapy and offers even better precision than conventional radiation therapy with photons. It requires very advanced specialized equipment so it is only carried out in a small number of centers globally. The new proton center will be equipped with an accelerator from Sumitomo Heavy Industries and is scheduled to be operational in 2014. SMC has now ordered RaySearch’s RayStation® treatment planning system for planning of all proton treatments at SMC. The system will incorporate all the latest advanced tools and algorithms for optimization and dose computation to take full advantage of the potential that proton therapy offers.
