RaySearch, Canon Medical announce new collaboration agreement

RaySearch Laboratories, a Stockholm-based medical technology company, and Canon Medical Systems Corporation have announced a new collaboration focused on integrating two of RaySearch’s software products—RayStation and RayCare—into Canon Medical’s imaging and advanced visualization solutions.

The collaboration, focused on improving both workflow and patient care, will generate products for the U.S. market first. RaySearch’s RayStation provides users with “a flexible treatment planning system,” and RayCare is an oncology information system first released in 2017.

“We are very excited about our collaboration with Canon Medical, which will open up a new market for RaySearch where we can make a great difference,” Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch, said in a prepared statement. “The agreement will help streamline workflows and aim to increase efficiency. We are looking forward to see where this relationship will take us in the future of advanced cancer care.” 

“This collaboration exemplifies Canon Medical’s ’Made for Life philosophy,’ allowing us to provide clinicians and their patients with the combination of best-in-class medical imaging technologies along with best-in-class oncology informatics to deliver better quality care at a lower cost,” Toshio Takiguchi, president and CEO of Canon Medical, said in the same statement. “Together through this partnership with RaySearch, we aim to bring further benefits of high-definition imaging to the oncology continuum of care.”
