Japanese postprocessing firm TeraRecon demonstrated work-in-progress treatment planning software at the ASTRO meeting Nov. 4 to 8. The software, which runs on TeraRecon’s Aquarius workstation, supports treatment planning, dose calculation, and dose optimization. It features real-time 3-D volume rendering, using the company’s VolumePro technology, as well as such advanced features as interactive image fusion, auto contouring, beam and block entry, dose calculation, and segmented image reconstruction with isodose display. The system can also digitally reconstruct radiographs and generate dose-volume histograms for 3-D structures. An intravascular brachytherapy module provides extended radial and anisotropic dose functions.
