Amsterdam, the Netherlands and San Diego – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) will showcase its integrated radiation oncology solutions at the American Society for Radiation Oncology’s (ASTRO) 59th Annual Meeting and Exhibition in San Diego, California. Focused on enhancing precision, managing radiation successfully and reducing time to treatment, Philips aims to create greater consistency across the treatment planning process for radiation oncologists and their patients. Among Philips’ latest innovations is RTdrive MR Prostate, the first and only workflow solution that combines imaging, MR-based auto-contouring and workflow management to generate high-quality treatment plans for prostate cancer in within 25 minutes*.
While targeted radiotherapy can be effective, uncertainties throughout the process – from imaging to planning to treatment – can impact the quality of care. These uncertainties, combined with growing caseloads, higher patient throughputs and increasing pressure on resources, all present a challenge to providing efficient care. With innovations that can reduce these uncertainties, improve accuracy, and enhance the ability to assess therapy response and adapt treatment plans if necessary, radiation oncologists can confidently deliver consistent, high-quality care.
RTdrive MR Prostate enables radiation oncologists to generate high-quality treatment plans for prostate cancer with fewer manual steps by harnessing the power of the Ingenia MR-RT platform, MR-only simulation, Auto-Contouring and Pinnacle³ Auto-Planning. Due to this breakthrough in intelligent automation, radiation oncologists can create treatment plans more quickly with less effort, saving valuable time and contributing to a better patient experience.
“Oncology care teams strive to increase precision, accelerate time to treatment, improve patient care and enhance patient satisfaction,” said Ardie Ermers, General Manager of Radiation Oncology at Philips. “Delivering on our commitment to provide meaningful innovations for patients and care providers, we have focused on developing solutions in radiation oncology to streamline workflows from start to finish.”
