STEREOTACTIC PLANNING

RayStation offers many proven tools to support stereotactic workflows. From planning to adaptive, we offer all the options you need to create high quality stereotactic treatment plans.

A single planning platform powered by high speed calculation

RayStation includes an ultrafast optimization engine that can solve virtually any posed optimization problem within radiation therapy regardless of beam modality and treatment technique – use the same software for stereotaxis as for the rest of your treatments. Thanks to the GPU technology, it takes seconds to calculate complex IMRT and VMAT plans, typical for stereotactic treatments, even for dose grids with resolution as fine as 1 mm
  • Stereotactic cones – Static beams/plans 
    or static arc beams/plans can be created
  • Dynamic conformal arc
  • IMRT
  • VMAT
  • TomoTherapy
  • 3D-CRT

 

Key features

  •     Treat multiple targets with a single iso-center
  •     Export plans to motion management systems
  •     Coplanar and non-coplanar beams for any linac-based technique
  •     Segment weight optimization for dynamic conformal arc
  •     Select which target/s to treat with a beam
  •     Set the maximum MLC margin around a target

Take your planning to the next level! In stereotactic planning, it is difficult to achieve optimal dose to targets and OARs due to high fraction doses, multiple and/or moving targets and tumors located near critical structures. The advanced optimization tools in RayStation will simplify your planning process.

Co-optimization of multiple beam sets

Optimize multiple techniques or plans with different prescriptions simultaneously.

Multi-criteria optimization

Use MCO to balance clinical trade-offs in real time. You can easily navigate to find the optimal trade-off between PTV coverage and OAR sparing.

Robust optimization

Create plans that are robust to patient setup and organ motion uncertainties. 

Dose Tracking and adaptive

Track the delivered dose and make an informed decision when to adapt your plan. When adaptation is necessary, you can easily create a new plan taking into account delivered dose. 

Biological plan evaluation

Evaluate Tumor Control Probability and Normal Tissue Complication Probability using both physical and biological tools. In plan evaluation it is possible to evaluate and compare multiple plans.
