Hoag Radiation Oncology, USA, selects RayStation as their new treatment planning system

April 9, 2019

Hoag Memorial Hospital’s Radiation Oncology division based in Newport Beach and Irvine, California, USA, have placed a major order for the treatment planning system (TPS), RayStation. RayStation will replace the current system and consequently function as the sole TPS moving forward.

Hoag treats more than 100 patients a day, making it the largest provider of radiation oncology treatments with the most comprehensive team in all of Orange County. The center treats a large variety of cancer cases, such as lung, brain and pancreatic cancer.

RayStation was chosen due to its speed, efficiency, and its ability to plan on one single platform for multiple machine vendors. The purchase includes functionalities such as planning with 3D, VMAT, IMRT, TomoTherapy and fallback planning.  

Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, says: “I’m excited that such a large and comprehensive cancer center as Hoag Radiation Oncology has chosen RayStation as their sole TPS. RaySearch’s goal is to unify the treatment process, creating a comprehensive cancer care independent from machine vendors, like in this case at Hoag Radiation Oncology. We share the vision to conquer cancer and I look forward to our future collaboration.”   

The total order value is about USD 900,000 and the majority has been recognized as revenue within Q1 2019.
