RaySearch Laboratories AB (publ) and Canon Medical Systems Corporation (Canon Medical) have entered into a collaboration agreement to facilitate a close integration between RaySearch’s advanced software products RayStation and RayCare*, and Canon Medical’s imaging systems and advanced visualization solutions.

While RayStation provides treatment planning functionalities, the oncology information system RayCare and its imaging archiving and communication system, RayPACS, provides the image management and workflow tools.

The collaboration, that will generate products that will initially be launched in the U.S. market, is expected to enable a more efficient workflow in the process of virtual simulation. By using radiotherapy imaging and planning tools, clinicians will be assisted in deciding how and where patients should be treated, determining the size and location of the tumor, planning the direction of radiotherapy beams and calculating appropriate iso-center locations.

RayStation Simulation provides functionality for virtual simulation including patient modeling, isocenter placement, export to patient marking systems, and beam design. The functionality has been part of RaySearch’s comprehensive treatment planning system for more than two years. The oncology information system RayCare was released by RaySearch last year and it provides the image management and the necessary workflow for performing virtual simulation tasks.

RayStation Simulation and RayCare will provide a fully integrated workspace and a comprehensive toolbox together with Canon Medical’s imaging technologies. This tightly integrated solution will simplify the workflow and assist treatment planners to design the best radiotherapy treatment plan for the patient.

Toshio Takiguchi, president and CEO, Canon Medical, says: “This collaboration exemplifies Canon Medical’s ’Made for Life philosophy’, allowing us to provide clinicians and their patients with the combination of best-in-class medical imaging technologies along with best-in-class oncology informatics to deliver better quality care at a lower cost. Together through this partnership with RaySearch, we aim to bring further benefits of high-definition imaging to the oncology continuum of care.”

Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, says: “We are very excited about our collaboration with Canon Medical, which will open up a new market for RaySearch where we can make a great difference. The agreement will help streamline workflows and aim to increase efficiency. We are looking forward to see where this relationship will take us in the future of advanced cancer care.”
