MR-only simulation highlight

Future of MR in radiotherapy

 

Prof. Dr. Marco van Vulpen and Ir. Dr. Nico van den Berg, UMC Utrecht cancer center, the Netherlands – are talking about the collaboration with Philips, which contributes to opening new treatment pathways for MR-guided therapies.

Today, MR has even more to offer radiation therapy treatment planning. Innovative MR-only simulation by Philips helps you rely on MR as a primary imaging modality for planning the treatment of prostate cancer patients.

 

Available as a plug-in extension to the Ingenia MR-RT, MR-only sim provides the excellent soft-tissue contrast you trust for target delineation – plus density information for dose calculations. And it’s designed for your workflow. Fast scanning protocols and embedded post-processing steps generate MRCAT (MR for Calculating ATtenuation) images on the MR console in just a few minutes with the density information you’d expect from CT.

Dr. Uulke van der Heide describes MR’s changing role in radiotherapy and a recent collaboration with Philips to bring MR-only simulation for RT planning from the lab to the clinic. The Philips Ingenia MR-RT platform now supports MR-only simulation for planning the treatment of prostate cancer patients.

 

Dr. Van der Heide is a medical physicist at the Netherlands Cancer Institute in Amsterdam.

Compatibility
Ingenia MR-RT 1.5T and 3.0T
Imaging protocol
Dedicated ExamCard provides sequences for 3D MRCAT source information, anatomical information for delineation (T2W) and prostate marker visualization
MRCAT generation
Running parallel to image acquisition, embedded post-processing performs automated tissue classification and bulk density assignment.
Auto-segmentation
Five different classifications: water, fat, spongy bone, cortical bone, and air
Export to treatment planning systems
MRCAT images are DICOM conform and can be exported, like CT images, to main treatment planning systems, including Pinnacle³, Eclipse, and Monaco.
