Treatment Planning Upgrade Offers Innovations for Brachytherapy

July 21, 2010 – A new version of a multimodality treatment planning system for brachytherapy and external beam treatment offers several features to increase planning speed and improve plan accuracy. Nucletron announced the upcoming release of Oncentra v4.0 at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine annual meeting this week. Available during the fourth quarter of 2010, Oncentra v4.0 offers several new innovative features that increase planning speed and improve plan accuracy.

Oncentra v4.0 premieres Graphics Processor Unit (GPU) calculation capability that reduces typical planning times from hours to minutes. Additionally, the release features a completely new Plan Manager module that automates routine tasks during treatment planning. Oncentra v4.0 also includes a new applicator-modeling feature that provides applicator and plan libraries, bar graphs and shielded applicators for brachytherapy planning.

The new version expands the capabilities of Oncentra, a fully DICOM-compatible treatment planning system. Oncentra provides progressive clinics with an independent option for treatment planning, offering compatibility with all major linear accelerators and sophisticated DICOM connectivity. The system provides freedom of choice for clinics to select what is best for patients and specific practices, rather than adhering to requirements of hardware manufacturers.
