INFINITT Healthcare and the Radiation Oncology department of Samsung Medical Center plan to develop the world’s first system of its kind.
(PRWEB) October 27, 2011
INFINITT Healthcare has launched a new project in collaboration with the Radiation Oncology department of Samsung Medical Center for the development of the world’s first integrated radiation therapy management system. Total funding for the project is USD 64 million, with the Korean government contributing half – USD 32 million – over the next four years.
‘Integrated Radiation Therapy Management System’ is an integrated management system which archives, manages, and checks various medical images and information in the radiation treatment process. It is essential to implement precise dose in radiation therapy: INFINITT Healthcare and the Radiation Oncology department of Samsung Medical Center plan to develop the world’s first system of its kind.
Radiation Therapy (RT) is one of the three main cancer treatments along with medication and surgery, and is growing more prevalent in medically advanced countries. RT is often preferred over surgery and drug therapy because it is effective and non-invasive.
As advanced RT has become more common, however, it has also become more difficult to manage RT data with existing analog methods. An integrated, digital management solution is needed to provide efficient search, display, comparison, and integration capabilities throughout the whole treatment process.
The combination of Samsung Medical Center’s radiation oncology experience with INFINITT’s expertise in software development is expected to result in the world’s leading integrated radiation therapy management system.
