Varian buys IKOEmed, IKOEtech

Radiation therapy firm Varian Medical Systems has purchased the assets of radiotherapy and radiosurgery treatment software developers IKOEmed and IKOEtech.

The deal will allow Varian to offer hospitals and clinics a software tool to automate and accelerate the contouring process, the most time-consuming portion of treatment planning, according to the Palo Alto, CA-based vendor. Varian is paying approximately $2.2 million for the Houston-based firms, plus an additional amount based on achievement of specified milestones.

The IKOE software is currently installed in about 20 sites, primarily in the U.S., Varian said. Varian said it would sell the software initially in the U.S. as a standalone product that will work with most radiotherapy treatment planning software in the industry. In addition, the company plans to integrate it with its Eclipse treatment planning software.
