FDA Clears BrainLAB’s Monte Carlo Dose Engine

July 29, 2008 - BrainLAB said it received 510(k) clearance for its Monte Carlo Dose Calculation Algorithm, which is already being used at several clinical cooperation sites worldwide.

The BrainLAB Monte Carlo Dose Calculation software is a high performance Monte Carlo algorithm for therapeutic photon beams supporting nearly all linear accelerator and multi-leaf collimator (MLC) types. Monte Carlo is now available as an option on the iPlan RT Dose treatment planning software. Dose calculations can be completed within seconds for conformal beam and dynamic arc treatments and within a few minutes for complex IMRT cases.

This dose calculation engine provides an advanced level of integration, which means its use is not limited to a single machine, multi-leaf collimator, energy or treatment modality and can be seamlessly integrated to drive treatment with Varian, Siemens and Elekta MLCs and linear accelerators. The multitude of treatment plans supported by the Monte Carlo Dose Calculation Algorithm, which include conformal beam, static and dynamic arc, and IMRT treatment modalities.
