Using MRI only in prostate cancer radiotherapy workflow

Best Practice
Keyrilainen, Jani, Ph.D. Turku University Hospital • Finland

Since March 2017, clinicians in the Department of Oncology and Radiation Therapy at Turku University Hospital (TYKS), Turku, Finland have been using Philips MR-only simulation routinely for simulating and planning radiation therapy for their patients with prostate cancer. Featuring the solution’s MRCAT approach, physicists can obtain the needed electron density information for radiotherapy dose calculations, rendering CT unnecessary in the workflow.

Three-phase commissioning process for MR-only simulation at TYKS

The team conducted a three-phase commissioning process for MR-only simulation. In addition to confirming negligible dose differences between CT- and MRI-based simulations, geometric accuracy of Ingenia MR-RT was found high and sufficient for radiotherapy planning.

Omitting CT in workflow helps save time and eliminates registration errors

With the omission of a CT scan and CT-MR image registration, MR-only simulation has simplified and shortened TYKS’s prostate radiotherapy workflow
