Developed with Radiation Therapy Professionals
ProSoma virtual simulation software remains as the number one v-sim software package in the UK & Ireland. It’s ultrafast, comprehensive, truly clinical tools, developed by oncologists, radiographers/radiation therapists, means it stands apart from v-sim modules developed as add-ons to treatment planning systems.
ProSoma is independent and acts as a link between each and every device/software involved in the complete chain of patient’s radiotherapy planning and treatment and works with all makes of CT/MR and PET scanners plus all makes of TPS, OIS, all treatment machine on-board EPID and CBCT images and has connectivity with PACS. ProSoma Provides a seamless workflow from patient’s pre-treatment scan to treatment.
Bringing the virtual patient to life
ProSoma’s clinical imaging across all its modules enables 3D & 4D navigation from surface anatomy through to radiographic anatomy to 3D CT /MR/PET, even showing corresponding anatomical points in a 4D moving radiographic and CT display. 3D image tracking through organs linked to anatomical DRRs or MR imaging brings diagnostic radiology imaging power. Supporting electron and photon set-ups using this powerful imaging means that simulation and planning are truly clinical and verifiable.
Revolutionary breast planning
MammoShape combines a clinically palpated breast volume with 3D imaging with rapid volume auto-contouring in just a few seconds. Designed by radiation therapists and oncologists this is unique, powerful and extremely time efficient.
Planning to MU & dose in seconds!
When the additional module ProSoma CORE is installed, a rapid dose (Monte Carlo) and MU calc are performed in seconds – this means that in a single session without having to transfer beam information to a second system, a fully approved treatment prescription can be made. This applies to all non-static beam set-ups e.g. palliative, POPs with MLC shielding, static breast plans etc.
Automated adaptive RT analysis using daily CBCT
A new ProSoma Core mode has been introduced to utilise daily cone beam CT data (CBCT) to capture anatomical changes during the course of treatment. When CBCT data is sent to ProSoma together with the planning CT and RT data ProSoma will perform deformable image registration of the two CTs and transfer the RT Structure Set and RT Plan onto the deformed planning CT. It will then calculate the new dose distribution on that CT. DVHs and various dose parameters will be calculated automatically taking into account the current patient anatomy.
The results of the calculations are automatically captured to a PDF report available for review in ProSoma or via the ProSoma Web Portal and can be forwarded automatically to staff needing to review the results.
Cost-effective licensing and flexible working
The software is in daily use across the UK and Ireland, with multiple and site-wide licensing, shared access across hospital sites, remote access including Citrix, and virtualised installations.
The extensive functionality ProSoma brings, means multiple systems can be disseminated across departments so that users can work flexibly performing any clinical task at any time from any location, even remote access and secure data transfer from hospital to hospital anywhere in the world.
Excellence for training
For training students and new staff, ProSoma can be set-up so that multiple trainees can work on the same cases simultaneously – a powerful training tool used regularly in university environments. It provides the students with a thorough understanding of the complete planning process from pre-treatment scan, contouring, Beam setup, dose calculation, dose evaluation and acceptance of the plan, and exporting to the R&V system ready for treatment.
