The University Hospital of Southern Denmark in Vejle has developed a new workflow enabled by RaySearch Laboratories’ RayStation adaptive replanning capabilities.
With this latest development, the hospital became the first in the world to use RayStation for an online adaptive treatment with augmented cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT).
The improved workflow is intended for adapting the treatment plan of a patient during the first treatment session and saves time for the patient.
RayStation will create a preliminary treatment plan based on the existing diagnostic CT scan instead of getting an additional scan.
The CT algorithm and adaptive replanning capabilities of RayStation allow the creation of an adapted plan using CBCT during the treatment session.
The first patient was a 65-year-old man with metastatic prostate cancer and was treated on 10 October, demonstrating the time-saving benefits.
