Nucletron Offers Oncentra VMAT Treatment Planning

November 1, 2009 - Nucletron offers the new Oncentra VMAT treatment planning solution for rotational therapy.

Oncentra VMAT is an independent and fully open rotational planning solution within the Oncentra external beam treatment planning system, which supports image-guided photon, electron and proton treatment delivery. The open flexible architecture provides independence and, according to Nucletron, allows for the fastest calculation times when creating VMAT plans for any brand of linac.

Oncentra VMAT provides:

Comfort for Patients
• VMAT treatments are typically two to eight times faster than traditional IMRT

Assured accuracy for Radiation Oncologists
• Complex plans can be delivered by the Linac via optimal single, multiple or dual arcs with CW and CCW gantry motion to maximize treatment efficiency

Planning performance for Physicists and Dosimetrists
• Simple yet powerful planning options provide physicists with the information they need to generate superior plans while limiting leakage, scatter and integral dose to the OARs
• Oncentra VMAT makes it easier to get a consistently excellent plan from day to day and planner to planner
