MR-only simulation for radiotherapy planning

Gerald Schubert, Teuvo Vaara, Matti Lindström, Reko Kemppainen, Marieke van Grootel-Rensen




This white paper presents a variety of methods for Philips MRCAT (Magnetic Resonance for Calculating ATtenuation) commissioning reported by Philips users.

Guidance to meet key MR-only simulation commissioning goals

When it comes to radiotherapy planning, clinical requirements for precision and accuracy of imaging and planning are extremely high. To ascertain that Philips MR-only simulation for prostate with MRCAT (Magnetic Resonance for Calculating ATtenuation) can meet these demands, medical physicists perform commissioning of MR-only simulation, prior to clinical implementation. This white paper presents a variety of methods for MRCAT commissioning reported by Philips users to help you meet your key commissioning goals: comparing the accuracy of dose delivery calculated with MRCAT against CT-based plans, and verifying proper patient positioning on the linear accelerator using MR-based image sets.
