On-table dose prediction provides additional quality assurance and gives physicians the timely, accurate information they need to verify and adjust treatment plans on the spot.
Dose prediction typically takes less than a minute. While the patient is on the treatment table, the MRIdian® system:
With this information, clinicians can immediately determine whether organ motion or other changes in the patient’s anatomy might result in a suboptimal treatment. If the predicted dose is out of tolerance, the physician can be called to decide whether or not the deviation warrants action. If the physician decides that the plan should be adapted, the MRIdian system can typically reoptimize the dose and create a new plan for the physician’s approval in less than two minutes.
