Philips introduces treatment planning technology

Philips Healthcare has introduced a new module for its Pinnacle3 radiation treatment planning package. The SmartArc optional module is an independent technology compatible with the leading linear accelerators, according to the company. It is designed specifically for volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), which combines the dosimetric benefits of rotational therapy with the dose painting capabilities of intensity-modulated radiation therapy. Philips expects its use to improve plan quality and increase efficiency of treatment.

Philips' latest 3T installations start up

The first installations of Philips' Achieva 3.0T TX are operating at Tokai University in Tokyo, Bonn University in Germany, and Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington, VT. Users are focusing on breast, spine, and abdominal imaging. The scanner, unveiled at RSNA 2008, features the company's new MultiTransmit technology, which automatically adjusts the radiofrequency signal to suit the anatomy of specific patients.
