RaySearch and IBA have had a strategic partnership on a global level since 2013. Over the years the collaboration has deepened and the combination of RayStation®* and IBA’s Proteus® systems are nowadays a well proven and de facto industry standard. Today, the majority of IBA’s Proteus centers have selected RayStation as treatment planning system and in total 27 centers around the world are equipped with a Proteus proton delivery system in combination with RayStation.
As part of the collaboration, the RayCare®* oncology information system from RaySearch, will be customized for optimal use together with the IBA delivery solutions. In both RayStation and RayCare, as well as in the IBA delivery solutions, joint features, dedicated software interfaces and modified graphical user interface components will allow for a seamless integration of the workflow with optimized performance. The result will be a turnkey solution for all software and hardware needed to deliver outstanding proton therapy treatments.
