Abstract

The SomaVision workstation is an advanced clinical contouring tool and plan approval for CadPlan. Imaging and graphical presentation are very important in treatment planning process because final conclusion result are analyzed on the base of contoured body structures. Three dimensional reconstructions in ail planes enable to visualize treated region, analyze target relation to surrounding tissues and select the appropriate treatment technique.

Since 1999 the SomaVision has been utilized in Center of Oncology-Institute in Gliwice. It is an advanced treatment planning preparation and plan approval workstation for physicians. It offers vide range of ZD and 3D graphical tools to support the definition of anatomical structures during contouring (interactive connection with CadPlan). In our Institute SomaVision workstations are installed in all departments related to Treatment Planning Unit in order to facilitate important but also very time consuming task of organ outlining.

The aim of this gaper is to present the benefits of SomaVision programme used in routine Treatment Planning Unit practice. On the base of Demo Patients two treatment planning preparation procedures:

  • -

    in CadP(an (contouring option) – in SomaVision are presented.

Our experience with SomaVision shows that this program facilitates work in Treatment Planning Unit by supporting graphical tools in organ outlining.
