MR-only simulation

Tap the real power of MR simulation

Our innovative MR-only simulation helps you use MRI as the primary imaging modality for planning prostate cancer patients’ treatment, thereby eliminating tedious and error prone MR-CT registration. Available as a plug-in extension to the Ingenia MR-RT platform, MR-only simulation provides high contrast anatomical MR images for target delineation and density information you’d expect from CT.

and simplify workflows

Innovative MR-only simulation by Philips helps you rely on MRI as a primary imaging modality for target delineation and dose calculations in prostate cancer treatment planning. This can reduce systematic geometric errors by eliminating tedious and error-prone MR-CT registration. It can improve workflow efficiency by decreasing the need for multiple simulation scans.

MRI’s excellent sort-tissue contrast

MRI offers superior soft-tissue contrast compared to CT for enhanced visualization of targets and OARs. CT-based delineation often overestimates the prostate volume as compared to MRI. Multiple studies have shown that MR imaging can reduce the volume of contoured prostate by around 30%.²

A dedicated imaging protocol optimized for fast and robust image acquisition and embedded image processing provides you with density information and high contrast anatomical MR images for delineation, all in one MR session and right on the MR console.

The MRCAT images with density information are DICOM conform and can be automatically exported, like CT images, to a number of main treatment planning systems (TPS). You can use this information as the primary image dataset for dose calculations and to generate MR-based digitally reconstructed radiographs (DRRs).

To successfully bring MR-only simulation into your clinical routine, we recognize the need to look beyond MR imaging – and also address steps such as patient marking, position verification, and quality assurance. We can help you successfully adopt this new simulation paradigm with our workflow descriptions and tailored training support for radiation oncology professionals.

MR-only simulation for general pelvis

MR-only simulation for general pelvis³ lets you plan radiation therapy for pelvic soft-tissue cancers, including rectal, bladder, gynecological and prostate using MR imaging data only. Adopting a single-modality workflow helps avoid tedious and error-prone CT-MR registration, simplify workflows and lower the economic barrier for MRI integration.
