“We perform IMRT treatments since 2006. Due to the high patient volume for this technique we were looking for a Treatment Planning System that:
· Could provide the same high plan quality as existing TPS, and
· Lowers application times to enable us to do 10 Minute treatment time-slots
The combination of Panther DAO IMRT and ARTISTE with 160MLC has proven beneficial even for difficult tumor configurations, generating high quality, reduced segment plans with low MU. Additionally worth pointing out is the dose calculation with the Collapse Cone method, and the simplicity of creating QA-plans.”
