RaySearch Laboratories: Ghent University Hospital chooses RayStation as main treatment planning system

Ghent University Hospital (UZ Gent) has selected RayStation® to
streamline its planning workflow in a multivendor linac setup.

With a capacity of more than 3,000 patients and nearly 6,000
employees, UZ Gent is one of the largest and most specialized
hospitals in Flanders. Its radiation oncology department has a track
record in the development of innovative radiation therapy delivery
techniques. It greatly contributed to the development of IMRT and
currently plays a leading role in clinical and physics research on
dose painting by numbers.

UZ Gent radiation oncology department has a multivendor linac
configuration from Elekta and Varian. The hospital needed treatment
planning software that could easily integrate with their current
systems and streamline their planning workflow. They found what they
were looking for in the RayStation treatment planning software from
RaySearch, which offers high compatibility with all linear
accelerators commercially available. RayStation will be used for all
of the hospital's clinical treatment planning.

Prof. Dr. Yolande Lievens, Chair of the radiation oncology department,
says: "With RayStation, we foresee the advantages of much quicker and
more efficient daily planning that will allow us to choose the
optimal plan for each individual patient. We also appreciate the
openness of RaySearch toward the planning research performed in our
department and the company's enthusiasm in relation to potential
collaboration."

"We are extremely proud to count UZ Gent among our RayStation users.
Their recognized expertise in radiation oncology will be highly
valuable to further demonstrate the treatment planning system's
leading capabilities here in the Benelux region and we look forward
to a fruitful collaboration," says Annelies Zimmermann, Business
Director of RaySearch Benelux.
