MIM Software Inc. Collaborating With Radialogica to Provide Monte Carlo Dose Calculation

Partnership will combine MIM Software’s imaging and registration tools with Radialogica’s dose calculation capabilities

MIM Software Inc. Collaborating With Radialogica to Provide Monte Carlo Dose Calculation

July 30, 2018 — MIM Software Inc. announced its intention to collaborate with Radialogica to provide an integrated, advanced Monte Carlo dose calculation algorithm for adaptive radiation therapy assessment and quality assurance. MIM Software is currently demonstrating its latest solutions at the 2018 American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) annual meeting, July 29-Aug. 2 in Nashville.

Monte Carlo simulation is considered the gold standard in dose calculation. MIM Software CEO Andrew Nelson said the partnership will allow the companies to combine automation and dose calculation on a vendor-neutral platform.  

Combined with MIM Software's imaging and registration tools, the addition of an advanced Monte Carlo dose calculation algorithm will provide a leap forward in automating adaptive assessment during therapy while providing 3-D dose verification using independently verified beam models.

Through a previous partnership with Scientific RT, Radialogica offers the SciMoCa dose calculation algorithm.
