Siemens Offers MVision Megavoltage Cone Beam Imaging Package

Siemens recently rolled out MVision, an IGRT system that is said to deliver outstanding image quality for accurate patient position verification and adjustment.
Designed to work with Siemens’ linear accelerators, MVision is the first commercial implementation of cone beam technology utilizing a standard radiotherapy treatment beam. MVision makes it possible for the megavoltage (MV) source used for treatment to also create a 3D image of the patient, enabling clinicians to see inside the patient at the most appropriate moment.
Created to complement a clinic’s oncology workflow, MVision fully integrates and automates all processes, including acquisition, reconstruction, registration, assessment, patient positioning and clinical review. With a few steps, therapists can calculate 3D offsets, send them to the treatment couch to compensate for daily variations and safely deliver therapy.
The MVision Megavoltage Cone Beam Imaging Package is reportedly fast, automated and efficient. True, single-console integration allows the entire process of image acquisition, 3D reconstruction and automatic offset calculation to be performed in less than three minutes.
