In a move to develop advanced radiation therapy planning software, Palo Alto Californian-based Varian Medical Systems is collaborating with RaySearch Laboratories, of Stockholm, Sweden, in a long-term agreement. The two parties will work on developing numerous components, including radiobiological optimisation software. The first of these components is expected to be available within the next year, in line with Varian's Eclipse treatment planning system. Radiobiological optimisation and evaluation enables clinicians to personalise patient therapy plans and optimise treatment of tumours and tissue complications with the use of biological models.
