This article was originally published in Clinica
Siemens Healthcare has teamed up with radiotherapy company Prowess in a bid to develop new radiation oncology treatment planning software. The exclusive partnership will see Siemens integrate into its linear accelerators Prowess' direct aperture optimisation (DAO) technology. The DAO technology allows clinicians to make on-line corrections to the treatment plan based on pre-treatment CT scans, just before the patient is about to receive therapy. This combination is designed to help users reduce the amount of equipment in the workplace and cut down overall treatment times. Chico, California-based Prowess is currently developing the DAO-based Plan-to-Patient software for radiation therapy, which is undergoing clinical assessment and is scheduled to become commercially available in Q2 2008. According to Siemens, the Plan-to-Patient device works in conjunction with its CTVision system, an image-guided radiation therapy device.
