At ASTRO, Philips MR Therapy will introduce the Ingenia MR-RT Oncology Configuration. This dedicated MR imaging system allows you to smoothly integrate MR imaging into your CT-based RT planning workflow and to take full advantage of MR’s excellent soft-tissue contrast for delineating tumors and critical structures.

The Ingenia MR-RT provides high-quality MR images with remarkable geometric accuracy acquired in treatment position. The state-of-the-art 70 cm wide-bore Ingenia scanner easily accommodates the indexed flat table top and a variety of patient immobilization tools. The optional laser bridge allows patient alignment at the scanner to support reproducible positioning.


This truly comprehensive solution further provides versatile coil solutions and customized MR protocols for imaging of prostate, female pelvis, brain and head & neck. Together with tailored training for RadOnc staff it helps you streamline workflows in MR imaging to bring patient management to the next level. 



Brilliance CT Big Bore offers high image quality with reduced artifacts

At ASTRO, Philips CT will be showcasing their latest radiation oncology solutions for the Brilliance CT Big Bore – O-MAR and iDose4. O-MAR reduces artifacts caused by large orthopedic implants. This helps to improve visualization of anatomic structures and target volumes, and improve contouring and patient marking workflow.

iDose4 improves image quality* though artifact prevention and increased spatial resolution. Together O-MAR and iDose4 produce high image quality with reduced artifacts.


It is proven that 4D respiratory gating studies allow for better assessment of tumor motion and critical organs, but these studies can suffer from image noise. iDose4 improves image quality by reducing noise. And because iDose4 reduces artifacts in images, technology can be helpful in imaging patients who can’t lift their arms due to required treatment position or weakness, trauma, and other ailments. O-MAR and iDose4 are both currently available on the Brilliance CT Big Bore.


*”Improved image quality” as defined by improvements in spatial resolution and/or noise reduction as measured in phantom studies.

Increased computation times for complex VMAT planning, adapting the treatments with the changing patient anatomy and lengthy plan review process remain major challenges in today’s radiotherapy departments. At ASTRO, Philips will be showcasing solutions that are designed to address these issues, not only for conventional radiotherapy but also for proton therapy.

There will be several products on display, each focusing on different aspects of treatment planning, but designed to achieve a common goal – enhancing departmental efficiency. Pinnacle³ 9.6 with Dynamic Planning aids and streamlines assessments and re-planning through automation. fullAccess accelerates the plan review by providing the ability to review & annotate images & plans from almost anywhere. Pinnacle³ 9.8 increases planning efficiency through faster dose calculations. Pinnacle³ Proton Planning is fully integrated within Pinnacle³ and provides the ability for seamless proton-photon composite planning.
