Philips debuts MBS oncology software

Philips Medical Systems has released its Model Based Segmentation (MBS) software for image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) workflow at this week's annual meeting of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) in Orlando.

The software features an anatomical library of 3D patient organ structure models; users can drag and drop the models onto patient image data, according to the Andover, MA-based firm. The software automatically adapts to each patient's anatomy, and the library grows as new patient data are added, Philips said.

In other AAPM introductions, Philips has added P3PC for remote planning, which allows Philips customers to remotely access their patient data at more than 1,600 installed Pinnacle3 sites around the world.

In addition, Philips has incorporated new 4D tools to its Tumor LOC application, allowing users to assess motion of respiratory studies. An extended display field-of-view has also been added, enabling users to visualize outside standard true 60-cm SFOV to help avoid untargeted areas during treatment planning, according to the firm.
