IBA, Raysearch showcase online adaptive proton therapy workflow at ESTRO 37

By News Release

IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A., EURONEXT), a provider of proton therapy solutions for the treatment of cancer, and RaySearch Laboratories, a treatment planning software company, will demonstrate at the ESTRO congress how they will optimize patient treatment by offering the first online adaptive proton therapy workflow.
IBA and RaySearch will present their full-size demonstration including the RayCare* oncology information system, the RayTreatment workflow and treatment planning system, the AdaPT Insight imaging platform and the AdaPT Deliver treatment delivery. In an online adaptive workflow, daily cone-beam CT images are used and matched to the planning CT of an individual patient. This automatically suggests to the care team an adapted treatment plan that takes into account the most up-to-date patient anatomy. This workflow offers more accurate treatment plans as well as faster plan adaptation to the benefit of patients.
Frederic Genin, Head of Product Management at IBA, commented: “The combination of IBA’s cutting-edge Cone Beam Imaging solutions with the treatment planning and treatment workflow solutions from RaySearch enable our future clinical partners to make Online Adaptive Proton Therapy a reality. We are very excited to see how these advanced functionalities can be beneficial to the patients around the world.”
Björn Hårdemark, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of RaySearch, added: “The treatment planning technologies necessary for adaptive re-planning have been available in RayStation for many years now. With the introduction of RayCare, we also enabled the workflow components for offline adaptive treatments. To make online adaptive treatments possible, a tight integration to the delivery systems is necessary. The strategic alliance between IBA and RaySearch has provided the perfect circumstances to achieve this. The successful integration shows the strength of a collaborative approach.”
The live demo of the first online adaptive Proton Therapy workflow will be demonstrated on IBA booth #1400 during the European Society for Radiotherapy & Oncology (ESTRO) annual congress that will take place in Barcelona, Spain, from April 20th to 24th.
