Philips Medical Systems and RaySearch Laboratories of Stockholm are ready to enter the next phase in their collaboration to create advanced systems for inverse treatment planning in intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). The two companies are focusing on next-generation systems that will manage the patient's course of treatment by leveraging Philips imaging, simulation, information management, and treatment management capabilities. The initial phase of the collaboration is culminating with the introduction of two new IMRT subsystems. One optimizes settings on the linear accelerator so as to shorten treatments. The other optimizes radiobiological considerations and evaluates treatment plans.

Since 2000, Philips and RaySearch software products have been integrated and sold with the Philips Pinnacle3 treatment planning system. Cooperation between the two companies resulted in the release of P3IMRT, which was commercialized in 2001. This product incorporates RaySearch's ORBIT module, a general software framework for solving optimization problems in radiation therapy.
