Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre’s five Victorian sites have deployed a unified radiotherapy treatment planning and oncology informatic system.

In a partnership with research and developers Varian, the Peter Mac hospital locations will have new cloud-hosted treatment planning systems, as well as new oncology imaging informatics systems.

Nilgun Touma, Director of Radiation Therapy Services at Peter Mac, Melbourne, said the new systems will support the radiation oncology team to develop tailored treatment regimens – a task that requires absolute confidence in the accuracy of patient data and efficiency of planning workflows.

Until recently, Peter Mac ran multiple treatment planning systems across its five radiation therapy sites.
