Radiation Therapy System Upgrades Showcased at AAPM

July 23, 2010 - New capabilities of several of Standard Imaging radiation therapy products where exhibited this week at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine’s (AAPM) Annual Meeting in Philadelphia.

The new IMSure QA Software Brachytherapy Module allows users to perform secondary checks of high-dose rate (HDR), low-dose rate (LDR) and permanent seed implants on a single-spaced interface.

New features were shown in RT Workspace (RTWS) to further expedite communication and patient planning. The software is Standard Imaging’s workflow software aimed at optimizing patient care and improving workflow during radiotherapy treatment. The new capabilities of RT Workspace 2.0 allow a site to place their secured patient database on the Web. This lets physicists, doctors and dosimetrists view planning and treatment information on external networks. This, combined with RTWS’s new three-tier user hierarchy and the ability to receive e-mail alerts when paired with any external mail server, ensures that patient care and security does not stop at a clinic’s doors.

Standard Imaging also highlighted its StructSure Software, a quantitative and qualitative quality assurance (QA) tool for anatomy contouring. StructSure was recently used during the Contouring Challenge, a competition created to bring attention to the fact that anatomy contouring remains a large source of variation in radiation oncology.
