RT Service Starts Up Adaptive Radiation Therapy for Under $5,000

October 21, 2009 - Velocity Medical Solutions, a provider of tools for clinical outcomes, radiation treatment planning and software development for oncology, has introduced a new subscription service designed to quickly provide adaptive radiation therapy to hospitals and radiation oncology centers with minimal up-front capital investment.

With less than a $5,000 up-front investment, the subscription service provides a workstation computer and all software to equip radiation oncology departments with the most advanced imaging platform available. This subscription service resulted from a new cost-effective method of product demonstration and delivery service.

The Velocity-AI Advanced Imaging Solutions system provides advanced visualization, fusion and metabolic assessment tools to better assist oncology professionals in the management of cancer patients in all stages of the treatment process. The adaptive radiation therapy platform provides dose tracking and automated re-planning tools that allow clinicians to compare dose planned to actual dose delivered throughout the treatment cycle. Adaptive re-contouring saves significant time when re-planning is required due to anatomical changes throughout a patient's treatment. Velocity-AI's deformable fusion and automated atlas-based segmentation tools allow a more accurate incorporation of diagnostic imaging into the treatment planning process and provide significant time savings in the initial contouring process. These tools represent the latest developments in clinical advancements available to oncology professionals.

The Velocity-AI Advance Imaging Solutions system enables physicians to use multi-modality imaging data sets to develop radiation therapy treatment plans.
