Particle Therapy Treatment Planning
XiO® integrated planning capabilities support the range of treatment modalities electron, photon and proton. Within proton therapy, users can employ the following:
- Broad Beam supports uniform scanning, wobbled beams and scattered beams
- Spread-out Bragg peak (SOBP) using rotating wheels or ripple filters, apertures and compensation filters
- Spot Scanning with Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy (IMPT*): Nuclear interactions are included when calculating overall scatter, lateral heterogeneities of the patient volume are addressed via decomposition of spots into pencil beams. XiO supports single (SFUD) and multiple field optimization and user definable spot spacing parameters.
Particle therapy systems represent a significant investment and opportunity. Elekta Particle Therapy solutions can help clinics maximize both.
