Philips Collaborates With MIM Software on Radiation Therapy Treatment Planning

January 31, 2019 — Philips announced a collaboration with imaging solutions provider MIM Software Inc. to improve radiation therapy treatment planning. With its integrated portfolio of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems and intelligent treatment planning software, Philips supports clinicians in making confident therapy decisions. MIM Software provides practical imaging, automation and data analysis solutions to radiation therapy clinics worldwide.

By collaborating to integrate their radiation oncology solutions, Philips and MIM Software will enable clinicians to benefit from a more streamlined approach to treatment planning across the two companies’ portfolios.

Philips recently unveiled its new radiation oncology portfolio, including its new Big Bore RT and Ingenia Ambition/Elition MR-RT imaging systems and Pinnacle Evolution treatment planning software.

MIM Maestro, MIM Software’s flagship radiation oncology package, provides a comprehensive set of oncology solutions to automate the clinical workflow including image registration, auto-contouring and dose evaluation.

The agreement with MIM Software follows other recent partnerships in radiation oncology for Philips. In early 2018, Philips announced it is collaborating with Sun Nuclear to integrate its suite of PlanIQ software into its Pinnacle treatment planning platform. Later in the year at the American Society for Radiation Oncology’s (ASTRO) 60th Annual Meeting and Exhibition, Philips announced an agreement with Lifeline Software Inc. to utilize its fully automated independent dose verification technology.
