AcQSim3 Virtual Simulation is the First Step in IGRT Treatment Planning

Imagine being able to view vascular, soft tissue, bony, and abnormal structures at the same time is possible with Philips Healthcare's AcQSim³ workstation’s volume-rendered Digitally Composited Radiographs (DCRs). And AcQSim³‘s virtual fluoroscopy mode mimics the movement of a conventional fluoroscopic simulator – to permit fast target definition. AcQSim³ also allows you to incorporate 4D gated imaging data into the simulation and planning process to help more accurately visualize tumor movement within the patient.

To maximize your oncology workflow, AcQSim³ can be integrated with Pinnacle³ our industry leading radiation therapy planning system. This complete oncology workstation is capable of performing all tasks from simulation to automated image registration, 3D planning, IMRT, and IGRT.

Accurate Absolute Patient Marking – On qualified Philips scanners, AcQSim³ absolute patient marking allows you to scan without fiducial markers thus saving time; Advanced DRRs – (Digital Reconstructed Radiographs) Digital pixel ray tracing using custom look-up tables creates superior images in less time; Volume of Interest – VOI tools allow quick elimination of all unnecessary anatomy for increase visualization; Blocking Tools – Tools for defining blocks, MLC and other beam modifiers such as our unique paintbrush and more; Beam Setup Tools – i.e., Default orthogonal beam pair, center beam in field, center beam in patient help to increases efficiency; Scripting Tool – Records and plays back most of the steps in the simulation process saving valuable time within the simulation process
