Philips Introduces MR Simulator, CT Enhancements

Philips announced today at ASTRO the introduction of Panorama 1.0T R/T, a high field open MR simulator, and Tumor Localization (Tumor LOC) version 3.5 for CT, both designed to support department efficiency and provide valuable information during radiation oncology treatment planning.
The Panorama 1.0T is a high field open MR system features whole body diagnostic imaging capabilities, enabling techniques such as diffusion weighted whole body imaging with background body signal suppression (DWIBS) for identifying lesions without exposing the patient to radiation or radioactive isotopes. The open gantry allows for patient scanning in treatment position with immobilization devices or supine inclined for breast imaging. A flat and rigid oncology table-top modeled after the LINAC table and a set of MR-compatible immobilization devices are designed to improve patient alignment.
Tumor LOC, used to localize target volumes for radiation therapy planning, is already available to Philips Brilliance CT Big Bore customers on the console, but with the upgrade to version 3.5 this application will be available for purchase on the Extended Brilliance Workspace (EBW).
The upgrade targets customers with large respiratory correlated workloads as it includes features for viewing respiratory correlated CT datasets and analyzing motion of target and surrounding anatomy. When combined with Remote Reconstruction and Pulmonary Viewer, the 4-D oncology workstation also provides dynamic digitally reconstructed radiographs (DRR) and digitally composited radiographs (DCR) for visualizing respiratory motion and evaluation of multi-phasic volumetric datasets.
