New Radiation Therapy PACS Launched in North America

October 26, 2010 – A new radiation therapy (RT) picture archiving and communication system (PACS) has been launched in the North American market. Infinitt RT PACS and Radiation Therapy Information System (RTIS) will integrate data from an array of sources and provide access to the data for planning, monitoring and facilitating all aspects of the complex radiation treatment process. Together, they computerize the complete workflow of radiation therapy, eliminating reliance on paper and film.

Both systems have been implemented at two of the largest hospitals in Korea, Samsung Medical Center and Seoul National University Hospital, which has helped both radiation oncology departments move toward paperless and filmless operations.

Source data - consisting of the original CT or MR image, the anatomical structure set including organ and tumor information, the RT plan parameters, annotations, dose information and other RT images - are stored in a centralized repository that makes the data readily accessible. In both hospitals, the Infinitt solution is integrated with Pinnacle and Eclipse Treatment Planning systems and an electronic medical record (EMR).

Radiation treatment planning is currently recorded on paper charts, notes are handwritten and images are still printed. Interoperability issues have not been addressed, so the physicist and clinicians must gather treatment information from multiple workstations and file rooms.

The company’s RTIS computerizes patient registration, treatment course creation, simulation information management, treatment record management and scheduling. It includes medical notes, stores all planning data and supports automation of processes.
