Nucletron Releases Planning System for Brachy Solutions

May 14, 2009 - Nucletron, a knowledge-based leader in radiation oncology, today announced a new release of Oncentra Brachy, a comprehensive film- and volume-based treatment planning system to optimize cancer treatment planning for brachytherapy.

Oncentra Brachy is a fully DICOM-compatible treatment planning system designed as a user-friendly Windows-based planning system that features optimization algorithms to ensure efficient treatment.
Oncentra Brachy is adaptable to reportedly any clinical workflow. As well as advanced 3D contouring and margining tools, Oncentra Brachy fully supports film-based (2D) treatment planning. The system allows for planning of a wide variety of brachytherapy treatments. Oncentra Brachy is fully geared up towards Intensity Modulated Brachytherapy (IMBT).
“We have set a new benchmark in brachytherapy treatment planning,” said Jos Lamers, chief executive officer of Nucletron. “We have worked with our clinical partners to develop a solution that migrates PLATO users to a new platform that fits the demands of all clinics. As part of our full range of brachytherapy solutions, Oncentra Brachy is a key element of our efforts in improving patient care.”
Nucletron will display and demonstrate Oncentra Brachy throughout the 2009 GEC ESTRO in Porto, Portugal, from 13 to 16 May 2009, and at ABS 2009 in Toronto, Canada, from 31 May to 2 June 2009.
