Product Description

As the first, and only, robotic radiosurgery system, the CyberKnife System is optimized to deliver stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SRS/SBRT) non-invasively throughout the body. Its ability to track and automatically correct for tumor motion during treatment enables delivery of high doses of radiation with extreme accuracy, providing personalized treatments to meet each patient’s needs.

Providing the most comprehensive set of tools available for precise treatment planning, the MultiPlan® System enables you to generate high-quality treatment plans for the CyberKnife® System.

Because treatment planning for the CyberKnife System is a multidisciplinary process – requiring input from the physicist, the radiation oncologist and the surgeon, among others – we provide flexible features in the MultiPlan System that address the specific needs of each group and can accommodate new clinical applications with ease. These features include:

  • QuickPlanTM automates the entire planning process including the setting of planning parameters and dose calculation. Complete treatment plans are generated based on the clinical objectives you define, and presented for your review and approval.
  • AutoSegmentationTM automatically generates accurate contours for intracranial and male pelvic anatomy using both model-based and atlas-based delineation methods. Results can be generated using both CT and MRI image information, requiring minimal user input.
  • Sequential Optimization provides an intuitive and intelligent plan optimization algorithm for rapidly developing custom-tailored treatment plans specific to the unique clinical objectives for each patient.
  • Monte Carlo Dose Calculation, which is often considered the gold standard for dose calculation, produces results in minutes compared to what commonly requires hours or days with other systems.
  • 4D Treatment Optimization and Planning System offers true 4D treatment planning that takes into account not only the movement of the target but also the movement and deformation of the surrounding healthy tissue and critical structures.
  • MultiPlan MD Suite delivers a comprehensive set of planning tools for image fusion, contouring, dose calculation and treatment plan review that can be remotely accessed by a secure connection from outside the clinic.
  • PlanTouchTMextends the reach of the MultiPlan Treatment Planning System’s review and approval functions through an iPad®, enhancing collaboration with the ability to download and share plans.

VERSATILITY

The CyberKnife System is constantly evolving to cater to the needs of new clinical applications.

 

TREATMENT TIME REDUCTION
A treatment time reduction tool, available during plan optimization, allows the user to iteratively reduce the total number of treatment beams and nodes, while still meeting treatment plan objectives. This tool gives the user the flexibility to plan for SBRT, SRS, or conventionally fractionated courses of treatment.
• Users now have a simple workflow to plan treatments to fit specific time objectives, improving throughput and efficiency

  • This tool gives the user the flexibility to plan for SBRT, SRS, or conventionally fractionated courses of treatment.
  • Users now have a simple workflow to plan treatments to fit specific time objectives, improving throughput and efficiency Simplicity The MultiPlan® System can create high quality treatment plans quickly and with minimal user input:
  • The Iris™ Variable Aperture Collimator2 and the Sequential Optimization algorithm3,4 have significantly decreased the time needed to create a treatment plan. Highly conformal plans can be created with fewer total monitor units, so treatment delivery time is also reduced.
  • Sequential Optimization can be scripted to enable the user to store planning objectives for use with future similar cases, thereby further reducing treatment planning time. • Monte Carlo Dose Calculation can be performed in minutes on the MultiPlan System, providing excellent agreement between calculated and delivered dose anywhere in the body.
  • Fully-automated fusion, automatic location of fiducials and features such as AutoSegmentation™ and QuickPlan™ further automate the planning process and significantly reduce the need for user input.

AutoSegmentation ™ AutoSegmentation is a contouring tool that provides accurate and automatic delineation of targets and critical structures with minimal input from the user. Prostate AutoSegmentation leverages a model-based approach to contour the anatomy of the male pelvis, including the prostate, rectum, seminal vesicles, bladder and femoral heads. Brain AutoSegmentation combines model- and atlas-based segmentation to contour complex three-dimensional intercranial structures in minutes. Both CT and MR data can be used, thus greatly improving clinical workflow. QuickPlan™ A number of features within the MultiPlan Treatment Planning System lend themselves to automating a large portion of the treatment planning process. The QuickPlan feature available in the MultiPlan Treatment Planning System provides: A scriptable Sequential Optimization algorithm

  •  Enhanced plan template tools for certain anatomical sites
  •  Automatic image fusion and identification of fiducials Radiosurgery DICOM Interface *

Centralized Digital Patient Record
In a typical oncology department there are many individual systems that each contain specialized pieces of information about a patient. Centralization of the patient’s oncology treatment record into a single digital record provides clinical benefits that can be realized immediately.

Treatment Charting
The CyberKnife® Data Management System provides the Radiosurgery DICOM Interface to export a patient’s CyberKnife treatment plan to the Onocology Information System (OIS) for charting and scheduling, query the OIS for the next scheduled treatment session and export the treatment results following delivery.

Specifically, two DICOM objects that describe the CyberKnife treatment are exported from the Data Management System to the OIS and stored in the digital record. Export of each of these DICOM objects is integrated into existing clinical workflows, providing maximum convenience for the clinician.

  1. The CyberKnife treatment plan is sent using the DICOM RT Plan Export function. The treatment plan includes the physician's prescription as well as detailed information about the planned fractions and paths.
  2. The CyberKnife treatment delivery record is sent using the DICOM RT Beams Treatment Record Export function. The treatment delivery record includes the total monitor units delivered during treatment as well as detailed information about the delivered fractions and paths.

BENEFITS

  • Eliminates manual data entry of CyberKnife treatment planning and delivery information into the OIS
  • Provides an ‘up to the moment’ record of the delivered treatment, doing away with the need to search multiple systems for information
  • Includes CyberKnife treatment planning and delivery information in automated OIS workflows such as scheduling and charge capture 
  • Enables clinical sites to be one step closer to a ‘paper-free’ clinical environment
