RayStation awarded treatment planning system tender at Canadian cancer center

By News Release

Centre intégré de cancérologie de Laval, Montreal, Canada, has selected RayStation through the public tender process as its sole treatment planning system, replacing existing systems. The center started cancer treatments in 2011 for residents of Laval and the surrounding areas. 

Centre intégré de cancérologie de Laval is equipped with four linacs, all Elekta Synergy with Agility MLC, as well as advanced imaging systems such as CT, PET-CT and MRI. The center plans for future expansion including MRI Simulation imaging tools and an additional linac to treat specialized cases.

A key factor for selecting RayStation was its client server architecture that centralizes information and allows standardization of treatment planning. The decision was further motivated by capabilities to automate the planning process for 3D-CRT and VMAT, additional optimization tools such as multi-criteria optimization (MCO), as well as the speed of dose computation and support for adaptive re-planning.

Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, says: “We are very glad to see that Centre intégré de cancérologie de Laval chose RayStation as its treatment planning system. The tender process in Canada has been intense and comprehensive. We have done well, and we are now working to effectively support these new centers in Quebec. We are excited to see the what the future will bring in our collaboration with Centre intégré de cancérologie de Laval.” 

This tender is the fifth public tender won by RaySearch in Canada over the past two years. At least one more RFP (request for proposal) tender in Canada is expected to be released during 2018.
