From IHE Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Radiotherapy Treatment WorkFlow (TRWF) integrates daily imaging with radiation therapy treatments using workflow.


Summary

Two Workflows are described by this profile:

  • Discrete Positioning and Delivery Workflow involves positioning a patient and subsequent treatment delivery performed by separate devices.
  • Integrated Positioning and Delivery Workflow involves positioning a patient and subsequent treatment delivery both performed by a single device.

Benefits

  • interoperability between multi-vendor radiotherapy systems


Details

Discrete Positioning and Delivery Workflow involves:

  • The Patient Positioning System (PPS)
    • acquires a set of 2D (planar projection) or 3D (CT) positioning images
    • performs a registration with previously retrieved reference images
    • repositions the patient if necessary
  • The Treatment Delivery Device (TDD)
    • delivers the intended treatment to the already correctly positioned patient

Integrated Positioning and Delivery Workflow involves:

  • The Positioning and Delivery System (PDS)
    • acquires a set of 2D (planar projection) or 3D (CT) positioning images
    • performs a registration with previously retrieved reference images
    • repositions the patient if necessary
    • delivers the intended treatment

Systems Affected

  • Radiation Oncology PACS
  • Treatment Planning Systems
  • Radiotherapy Treatment Delivery Systems
