Automated Workflow — Application Simplicity — Quality Outcome
Treatment plans are simply exported from the TPS via DICOM to the SciMoCa dose calculation server. Then SciMoCa starts the Monte Carlo calculation automatically. The patient worklist is automatically updated to keep the user informed about the current QA status of each patient plan.
SciMoCa provides an automatic evaluation of dose calculation results based on customizable protocols and plans quality measures for both target volumes and OARs.
This allows users to evaluate plan quality as well as identify dose discrepancies based on user-defined dose-difference thresholds.
DVHs for the treatment plan as well as the independent SciMoCa dose distribution are compared in the comparative DVH section.
The software allows individual selection of structures for the DVH display, thereby enabling a detailed and focused evaluation of relevant ROIs.
3D analysis via slice viewer
SciMoCa includes a slice viewer to visualize the TPS dose, SciMoCa-recalculated Monte Carlo dose, and Gamma analysis on individual CT slices. The 3D viewer permits detecting dose discrepancies on the patient anatomy level.
