Oncology artificial intelligence (AI) company Vysioneer has announced a strategic collaboration with Mitsubishi Corporation subsidiary MC Medical to introduce a new brain tumour auto contouring AI solution to the Japanese market.
This technology, named VBrain, is designed to improve clinical workflows and treatment accuracy for brain radiosurgery and radiotherapy, which are said to be crucial for patients with brain metastases.
In Japan, 20–40% of cancer patients develop secondary brain tumours, known as brain metastases.
VBrain aims to address this challenge by significantly reducing the workload of medical professionals while simultaneously improving patient care quality.
VysioneerCEO Dr Jen-Tang Lu said: “Japan stands at the forefront of advanced radiotherapy technology, and we are deeply honored to introduce our cutting-edge AI solution in this pioneering nation.
“Through our collaboration with MC Medical, we will empower healthcare professionals and elevate patient outcomes together.”
