overview

In radiation oncology, successful outcomes are measured by consistently and confidently moving patients into the right treatment plan. Which is where CT technology can help—by delivering accurate and reliable data for treatment planning for every cancer patient.

As the first CT scanner specifically designed for radiation oncology, Philips CT Big Bore delivers accuracy, superb imaging performance, an intuitive workflow, and quantitative integrity— empowering you to deliver precise treatment plans for your patients.

 

These units are to be sold installed as turn-key projects.

OVERALL FEATURES

The big benefits of better workflow

  • Accuracy: 60cm scan field of view (SFOV) Ensures that image quality and Hounsfield Unit accuracy is maintained out to 60cm— critical to calculate tissue density in planning.
  • Patient positioning: 85cm patient aperture Accommodates even complex patient setups and allows for imaging the patient in the optimal treatment position for accurate treatment planning.
  • Imaging performance: iDose4 and O-MAR iDose4 improves image quality* through artifact prevention, noise reduction, and increased spatial resolution at low dose. O-MAR reduces artifacts caused by large orthopedic implants and improves visualization of organs and structures. Together, they produce high image quality with reduced artifacts.
  • Motion evaluation: 4D CT tools Evaluate motion of the tumor and critical organs during breathing to aid in making clinical decisions regarding the size of the target volume and gated treatment delivery. The resulting images are used to identify a target volume that encompasses the entire range of tumor motion.
  • iPatient

Spend more time with the patient and less overall time on the procedure. Delivering dedicated oncology ExamCards, this advanced platform provides a standardized, patient-centered approach to imaging simulation with consistency from scan-to-scan.

  • Pulmonary Toolkit for Oncology

To evaluate how a tumor moves through the patient’s breathing cycle, this comprehensive set of tools helps improve accuracy in treatment planning and therapy delivery, even in patients who have difficulty breathing regularly.

  • TumorLoc

This application provides fast and efficient tools for patient marking and simulation directly from the scanner console. This includes consistent and reproducible setup from simulation to treatment, the ability to localize isocenter for treatment targets, and palliative “Sim to Treat” tools that bypass simulation and go directly to treatment. Accurate and efficient workflow powered by the Pinnacle treatment planning system
