“The workflow-centric approach of MOSAIQ will lead to increased patient comfort during the entire treatment process, as well as a high level of optimization of staffing activities on a daily basis.”, says Benoit Raskin, executive director of Particle Oncology Solutions Integration at Ion Beam Applications (IBA), whose mission is to fight cancer through solutions for cancer diagnosis and therapy.

The Center will also be equipped with XiO, a system that combines the latest tools and most robust dose calculation algorithms to generate quick, accurate treatment plans.

Raskin says XiO delivers a comprehensive planning functionality that addresses all of IBA’s clinical needs. “It will support all proton treatment modalities such as scattered or wobbled beams, spot scanning and ocular treatment. XiO’s powerful automated planning tools reduce planning time and increase clinical efficiency, in even the most demanding environments.”

MOSAIQ, as well as XiO treatment planning software from Elekta are designed to support different types of radiation systems and modalities, including Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT).

Raskin says the oncology market is turning toward the benefits of Proton Therapy. “The strength of this therapy, great dose control and sparing of normal tissue, can enhance and increase the effectiveness of radiation therapy.”
