Memorial Sloan Kettering Adopts MIM Software Radiation Therapy Solution

Software will be used to handle dose accumulation, contour creation, image fusion and other clinical and research work

March 4, 2016 — MIM Software Inc. has recently collaborated with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK), nationally recognized by the National Cancer Institute and ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top hospitals for cancer care in the country.

MSK will be using MIM Software's radiation oncology solution as a software source for handling dose accumulation, contour creation, image fusions and deformable registrations, as well as a host of other clinical and research work. The software will be deployed at the main campus in Manhattan, along with all outpatient facilities that extend from Manhattan through the New York suburbs as well as New Jersey and Long Island.

"In the ever increasing world of complex treatments for cancer, we are always looking to enhance our clinical workflow and advance the research we do," said Sandra Fontenla, senior physicist-clinical coordinator for external beam at MSK.

"Radiation therapy has become increasingly reliant on imaging for the safe and accurate treatment of cancer," Fontenla continues. "Our goal is to accomplish faster and more precise image registrations to enable physicians to identify tumors more quickly and accurately."
