St Louis, Missouri, USA, March 04, 2009
Featuring biological modeling, constrained optimization, sensitivity analysis and Monte Carlo dose calculation algorithms, Monaco represents a new approach to IMRT planning, including a sophisticated set of tools to make the radiotherapy planning process easier, more straightforward and more clinically reliable.
"The OHSU Department of Radiation Medicine is excited to offer its patients new technology that comes with the purchase of Monaco,” says Wolfram Laub, Ph.D., and Associate-Director of Medical Physics at OHSU. “The department has acquired multiple new technologies within the past few years and is a state-of-the-art facility. This recent purchase underlines OHSUs commitment to providing patients access to cutting-edge radiation therapy treatment."
As the clinic continues to adopt advanced treatment planning technologies, they intend to review the soon-to-be-released Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT)* planning functionality in Monaco. With the addition of VMAT to Monaco, clinicians will have additional benefits including:
Developed in collaboration with leading academic healthcare institutions, Elekta’s comprehensive VMAT solution, with 3D volumetric imaging and advanced treatment planning algorithms, allows more precise dose distribution and faster treatment delivery. Future developments include creating more efficacious and efficient approaches for clinicians to deliver patient care. For additional information, visitelekta.com/vmat
