With ViewRay’s unique treatment planning and delivery software platform, physicians are able to define the parameters of the treatment process in their prescriptions. Along with the dose, constraints, and objectives, the physician specifies whether it is allowable, mandatory, or not allowable to image the patient daily, perform on-table dose prediction, and enable automatic beam gating.
The MRIdian and MRIdian® Linac systems offer an adaptive, automated and integrated treatment planning system that uses a linac to deliver modulated radiation therapy. Our proprietary Monte Carlo Treatment Planning System is ultra-fast without compromising quality. ViewRay’s treatment planning platform fits into existing treatment paradigms and can be used for three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy planning (3D-CRT); intensity modulated radiation therapy planning (IMRT); stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS); stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT); and image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT); across a broad spectrum of disease sites.
With the ViewRay system’s built-in treatment planning and delivery software, clinicians can create and deliver treatment plans and perform quality assurance (QA) procedures efficiently, accurately, and safely. The software’s intuitive graphical user interface follows natural clinical workflows, keeping learning curves short. Advanced contouring tools and auto-contouring algorithms enable users to segment organs at risk and accurately delineate target volumes quickly. Built-in QA features—including stringent review and verification steps, and automatic system warnings if the planned and actual dose volumes exceed specified thresholds—help ensure the safety and accuracy of treatment delivery. A unique aspect of the MRIdian and MRIdian Linac systems is their ability to allow physician prescriptions to define the parameters of the treatment process. Along with the dose, constraints, and objectives, the physician defines whether it is allowable, mandatory, or not allowable to:
When physicians can design the delivery process and reassess the plan, as needed, over the course of treatment, plans can become ever more dynamic and individualized.
