This White Paper describes the Philips MRCAT (Magnetic Resonance for Calculating ATtenuation) solution for an MR-only based dose planning approach for external beam radiation therapy (EBRT).

Philips MRCAT for prostate dose calculations using only MRI data

Highly targeted treatment planning is at the foundation of successful radiotherapy. With its superb and tunable soft-tissue contrast, MRI has in recent years emerged as an imaging modality to drive delineation accuracy of targets and organs at risk. With the introduction of the first commercially available MR-only simulation package, Philips continues to pave the way for the adoption and implementation of MRI in radiation treatment planning. Philips MR-only simulation offers a single-modality approach that provides both excellent soft-tissue contrast for target delineation and density information for treatment planning for prostate cancer.
