There has been an increase in the adoption of fully comprehensive systems for treatment planning to provide radiation therapy. Such comprehensive systems offer advanced features that allow complete planning of the process, from patient data acquisition to plan validation. These information systems provide comprehensive information and image management solutions.
It allows the simplification of radiation therapy planning for different kinds of treatment such as 3D conformal, IMRT, electron, proton, and brachytherapy. These comprehensive systems provide flexibility to clinicians in order to quickly tailor plans for each patient. Therefore, increasing adoption of fully comprehensive systems is an emerging trend in the market.

According to UN statistics, in 2013, the senior citizen population increased from 9.2 percent of the total global population in 1990 to nearly 11.7 percent. It is expected that this trend will continue and reach 21.1 percent by 2050.
