CMS partners Hospital Puerta de Hierro to develop cancer treatments

CMS : 29 October, 2007  (New Product)
CMS has partnered with the Hospital Puerta de Hierro in Majadahonda, Madrid, Spain to develop cancer treatment technologies.
Hospital Puerta de Hierro is a new, state-of-the-art facility with sophisticated cancer treatment technologies. As part of their forward-thinking investment, the hospital selected CMS for long-term flexibility and reliability.

“There were several reasons we chose CMS as a treatment planning system provider and cancer treatment partner”, said Dr Luis Nunez, Head of the Physics Department at Hospital Puerta de Hierro in Majadahonda.

“First of all, CMS is a company with an extremely high expertise level and focus on developing treatment planning system solutions, which gives us total confidence for the future. Secondly, CMS’s core values of flexible, vendor-neutral platform and integrated technology solutions, fit very well within our philosophy. In fact, we do need CMS to be able to connect and manage all the information generated by the-state-of-the-art technology that we recently acquired, including 4D oncology CTs, advanced linacs with Cone Beam CT functionality, Tomotherapy, and more. In addition, CMS provides superior reliability, flexibility and system support. Finally, we are excited about the new products from CMS: Monaco, with Monte Carlo calculation for photons, and Focal 4D, still to be released, for managing intra-fractional and inter-fractional data.”

Matthias Franz, managing director of Europe, Middle East & Africa, based at CMS, Freiburg (Germany) said: “We are proud to announce that Hospital Puerto de Hierro has selected CMS products for radiation treatment planning. The outstanding clinic based in Madrid has a long tradition in excellent patient care and research since 1968. CMS accepts the high responsibility to partner on one of the biggest projects on radiation treatment in Spain. With our innovative products and integrated technology solutions we will strive with our clinical partners to create the most effective treatment for cancer therapy.”

Currently, the hospital is developing treatment plans with CMS’s leading treatment planning system, XiO.

XiO is a comprehensive treatment planning system that combines the latest tools and the most robust dose calculation algorithms, allowing users to generate treatment plans quickly and accurately to optimise the delivery of radiation therapy. XiO’s integrated planning capabilities support a range of treatment modalities, including 3-D, MLC-based IMRT (both sliding window and step-and-shoot), solid compensator-based IMRT, dynamic conformal arc therapy, brachytherapy and proton therapy.
