Philips Advances Tumor LOC

Philips’ exclusive Tumor Localization (Tumor LOC) application allows radiation oncology departments to localize target volumes for radiation therapy planning.

Designed for fast and simple CT tumor volume localization, the application includes exclusive features for viewing Respiratory Correlated CT datasets and analyzing motion of the target and surrounding anatomy.

Previously only available on the Philips Brilliance CT Big Bore console, version 3.5 makes the Tumor LOC application available for purchase on the Extended Brilliance Workspace (EBW) and GEMINI TF PET/CT systems.

All of the best-in-class 4D tools found on the console will now be available on the EBW, reportedly enhancing workflow efficiency and flexibility in the radiotherapy department.

These CT images show placement of a 3-D fixed array implanted fiducial (3-D marker) at the time of oncoplastic tumor resection. The original LCTV (LCTVo) was retrospectively re-contoured by the radiation oncologist (LCTVro) and breast surgeon (LCTVbs). Thereafter, both re-contours were combined to create the collaborative LCTV (LCTVc), which required agreement of both the radiation oncologist and breast surgeon. Volume differences between the original LCTV (LCTVo) and the collaborative LCTVc were then evaluated, and demonstrated a mean and median reduction in LCTV.
