Oregon Health & Science University Knight Cancer Institute Enhances Patient Care With Monaco(R) Radiation Treatment Planning System
Date:3/4/2009

ST. LOUIS, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- CMS Software, part of the Elekta Group and leader in radiation treatment planning and workflow management solutions, today announced that Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Knight Cancer Institute has purchased Monaco, the next-generation Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) treatment planning system.

Featuring biological modeling, constrained optimization, sensitivity analysis and Monte Carlo dose calculation algorithms, Monaco represents a new approach to IMRT planning, including a sophisticated set of tools to make the radiotherapy planning process easier, more straightforward and more clinically reliable.

"The OHSU Department of Radiation Medicine is excited to offer its patients new technology that comes with the purchase of Monaco," says Wolfram Laub, Ph.D., and Associate-Director of Medical Physics at OHSU. "The department has acquired multiple new technologies within the past few years and is a state-of-the-art facility. This recent purchase underlines OHSUs commitment to providing patients access to cutting-edge radiation therapy treatment."

As the clinic continues to adopt advanced treatment planning technologies, they intend to review the soon-to-be-released Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT)* planning functionality in Monaco. With the addition of VMAT to Monaco, clinicians will have additional benefits including:

  • Simultaneous optimization of multiple non-coplanar arcs, which allows flexibility when planning with one or more arcs.
  • Monte Carlo dose engine allows continuous arc calculation rather than being limited to dosing approximations with discrete gantry positions.
  • Biologically based constrained optimization, which enables better target dose
