October 30, 2007 - Carestream Health Inc. demonstrated its KODAK 2000RT CR Plus System and the optional KODAK Radiation Oncology Beam Dosimetry Package that reportedly provide flexibility and precision when conducting portal and simulation imaging, at the American Society for Therapeutic Radiation and Oncology (ASTRO), held Oct. 28 to Nov. 1, 2007.
The 2000RT CR Plus is a computed radiography system designed specifically for radiation oncology professionals. The system is said to support multiple treatment rooms and multiple linear accelerators and simulation devices, regardless of manufacturer or age. It can reportedly be networked to any DICOM-compatible QC image analysis software and oncology information system, as well as linked to a PACS to enable images to be reviewed on workstations outside the oncology department. A worklist function can be integrated with the hospital HIS/RIS to enable improved workflow and increased productivity.
For standalone cancer centers, KODAK Radiation Oncology Software provides features optimized specifically for the radiation oncology workflow, such as importing DRRs for side-by-side viewing, DICOM RT or DICOM 3.0 output and the ability to view and approve images on any networked PC.
The addition of the KODAK Radiation Oncology Beam Dosimetry Package to the 2000RT CR Plus platform allows physicists to perform a wide range of machine, beam and IMRT QA imaging along with the CR platform’s existing ability to capture portal localization, verification and simulation images required for radiation therapy patients.
