Eclipse Simplifies Treatment Planning

The Eclipse treatment planning system is a comprehensive solution designed to simplify modern radiation therapy planning for all kinds of treatment, including 3D conformal, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT), RapidArc volumetric modulated arc, electron, proton and brachytherapy treatments.

3D conformal planning tools in Eclipse are combined with interactive dose-volume optimization for reportedly fast, flexible and accurate IMRT planning. Automatic optimization of beam geometry simplifies the task of selecting the best beam angles for fixed-beam IMRT. Eclipse also incorporates a Smart Segmentation automatic contouring feature, the first fully automatic tool that uses intelligent software to identify and outline, within diagnostic images, organs and other structures to be irradiated or protected during treatment.

Eclipse is tightly integrated with Varian’s ARIA Oncology Information System, so that treatment plans from Eclipse are immediately accessible on ARIA workstations throughout the department as part of the patient’s electronic medical record, with no need for importing or exporting data.
