EH 1_2015 Aplio provides a comprehensive set of tools enabling you to perform an increasing number of procedures under ultrasound guidance. From automated needle enhancement to precise modality fusion, these applications allow you to navigate complex anatomy with pinpoint accuracy, improving both your clinical confidence and your productivity. Let’s talk. Is there a simpler way to guide my interventional cases ? 9EH @ ECR Data managementAll on one platform: archiving, advice, information, purchasing and selling The Infinitt Eco system brings togeth- er manufacturers, partners and cus- tomers via a single platform. The portal to the system is the Infinitt Store, which provides users with a comprehensive insight into the product range on offer, and enables quick inquiries to be made. Customers and partners can also promote and advertise their own products, increasing the value of the Infinitt Healthcare Platform. The Infinitt Healthcare Platform (IHP) is the firm’s central, vendor- neutral archiving storage system, which allows management and distribution of DICOM and non- DICOM data, the company explains, adding that users can choose which viewer to use to access their imag- es, a flexibility that enables seam- less workflow in daily routine. ‘The Infinitt Healthcare Platform is more than just a VNA, it is unique.’ Infinitt Solution Partners (ISP) offers integrated software technol- ogy and support to Infinitt, while Infinitt Manufacturing Partners (IMP) provides hardware through the platform. The organisation points out that its solution experts and the manu- facturers, distributors as well as overseas corporations play a very important role in reaching custom- ers and markets worldwide. During radiation therapy a patient’s situation changes often: bodyweight decreases, causing tumour shrinkage or a changed shape. Consequently, the radiation dose distribution dose set when therapy began is no longer optimal. At worst, radiation can no longer fully hit the tumour, causing part of the radiation to reach and damage healthy tissue. The Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing MEVIS is develop- ing software to optimise radiation therapy. The software developed in the SPARTA project (Software Platform for Adaptive Multimodal Radio and Particle Therapy with Autarkic Extendibility) aims to accelerate this process, thus offering cheaper thera- py progress. The Institute has reported that it has contributed a fast, accurate method of transferring the original planning situation to the current patient condition. To adjust the radiation optimally, doctors must compare the origi- nal planning images with the most recent control images. ‘Often, the doctor must view old and new images and compare them mentally,’ explains MEVIS researcher Stefan Wirtz. ‘However, our software can align both of them in a single image and transfer the contours of the radiation area.’ Consequently doctors can quickly recognise whether the original con- tours still apply to the current situa- tion. If not, the contours can easily be adjusted with the software tools, Fraunhofer explains. ‘Until now, replanning radiation therapy could take several hours,’ says Stefan Krass, a Wirtz colleague. ‘Our software can accelerate the process considerably.’ Radiation therapy
