Philips and MIM Software collab to streamline radiotherapy treatment planning

by John R. Fischer , Staff Reporter
Royal Philips is teaming up with MIM Software to improve radiation treatment planning.

The Dutch-based healthcare entity plans to combine its integrated portfolio of CT and MR imaging platforms, as well as its intelligent treatment planning software, with the practical imaging, automation, and data analysis solutions offered by MIM Software to create more streamlined approaches to treatment planning for clinicians.

RaySafe helps you avoid unnecessary radiation

RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.



"Today, adaptive therapy planning can still be a relatively manual process. We expect this partnership to contribute to our goal of enabling an adaptive, context-aware workflow, where the clinicians have the images and data they need, in ether application, at their fingertips," Ardie Ermers, general manager of radiation oncology at Philips, told HCB News. "The intention of this collaboration is to add value to the Philips Pinnacle treatment planning system and other future radiation oncology software Philips develops, by integrating leading partners in an ecosystem that enables efficient workflows."

The partnership follows the recent unveiling of Philips’ new radiation oncology portfolio, which includes its Ingenia Ambition/Elition MR-RT and Big Bore RT imaging systems, and Pinnacle Evolution treatment planning software.

Equipped with Philips’ BlueSeal fully-sealed magnet, the Ingenia Ambition MR-RT Imaging system is the only MR scanner capable of performing helium-free operations, decreasing chances for potentially long and expensive disruptions and virtually eradicating the risks associated with the unpredictable supply of the costly element.

“Normally, there’s 1500 to 2000 liters," Martijn Hartjes, head of MR product marketing for global marketing BIU MR for Philips, told HCB News at RSNA 2018. We've reduced that amount by 99.5 percent so now there’s only seven liters. It’s completely sealed so it cannot come out. It gets shipped from the factory with helium in it and that’s it. The customer never has to worry about helium anymore.”

Ingenia Elition, which received FDA clearance last June, is a 3.0T MR scanner with two clinical applications, Philips Compressed SENSE and 3D APT. Tapping into its features, clinicians can perform exams up to 50 percent faster with greater diagnostic confidence and the ability to improve the patient experience.

The new Big Bore RT system for CT scanning, which debuted at ASTRO, is equipped with new iterative model reconstruction (IMR) technology that reconstructs images with fine detail in less than three minutes, providing greater clinical accuracy in the detection and delineation of small, subtle structures, and better image quality with advanced auto-segmentation. A dedicated oncology simulator, it enhances confident decision-making across all stages of scanning, planning and treatment through improved accuracy for lesion identification, tissue density calculation and segmentation.
