SOFTware: the HARD part of proton therapy
The development, operation, and maintenance of particle therapy systems is a long, costly, complicated, and challenging process.
Software development plays the central and the most critical role, but it is often overlooked and underestimated. Most PT system manufacturers experience it as a bottleneck in their development of a complete solution.
Join our webinar, where we will discuss, together with world-renowned experts, the importance of performant software and how it affects the different aspects of a PT system, from integration, clinical workflows, safety, upgrades, and future technologies.
Finally, we will discuss outsourcing of software - is it the solution to the hard part of particle therapy?
Cosyab’s symposium will feature a panel discussion based on the following key topics and speakers:
PT Machine Complexity and Integration
Efficient Clinical and QA Workflows
Patient and Personnel Safety
PT System Upgrades
