RTdrive MR Prostate

Driving speed and consistency from imaging to plan

RTdrive MR Prostate combines multiple elements including the Ingenia MR-RT platform, MR-only simulation, Auto-Contouring and Pinnacle³ Auto-Planning, and allows you to generate high-quality treatment plans for prostate with fewer manual steps. Thanks to intelligent automation you can create plans within 25 minutes¹ with minimal user input, saving valuable time and effort.

Growing caseloads, higher patient throughputs, and increasing pressure on resources mean driving efficiency is a challenge in today’s healthcare environments. The more time you can save on repetitive routine tasks, the more time you have for patients and to focus on value-added activities.

 

RTdrive MR Prostate combines a number of individual building blocks, covering the entire workflow from imaging to planning. Together, they can help you streamline and automate prostate planning workflows, while remaining firmly in the driver’s seat.

Auto-Contouring uses dedicated MR imaging data and model-based adaptive algorithms to provide contours of the prostate and organs at risk. AutoContouring delineation of anatomical prostate, prostate organs at risk (OARs) has been found accurate (average distance less than 1.5mm)² in at least 70% of contours evaluated⁴.

Prepared for 1-click⁵ planning

RTdrive is designed to support 1-click⁵ workflows that cover the entire process from MR-only simulation to generation of a treatment plan with Pinnacle³ Auto-Planning. RT drives lets you work in an automated way, while keeping you in the driver’s seat.

Reduce imaging modalities to one

Since RTdrive requires input from MR images only, there is no need for CT simulation. This reduces organization and coordination of scans, eliminates the effort involved in MR-CT registration, and saves the patient from undergoing multiple procedures.

Enhance target contouring with MRI’s excellent soft-tissue contrast

MRI offers superior soft-tissue contrast compared to CT for enhanced visualization of targets and OARs. CT-based delination often overestimates the prostate volume as compared to MRI, and multiple studies have shown that MR imaging can reduce the volume of contoured prostate by around 30%⁶.

Contour2Plan provides a bridge between the MR console and Pinnacle³, by exporting images, contours and scripts to launch Auto-Planning. This replaces repetitive and error-prone manual activities, saving you valuable time and helping you to standardize processes

You can opt to export Auto-Contours to Pinnacle³ Professional or SmartEnterprise for a connected workflow. Moreover, the DICOM conformance of the image datasets and structures facilitates communication to other treatment planning systems. This helps you to remain flexible, while benefitting from the efficiency MR-based Auto-Contouring brings.

  • 1. Tested in a non-clinical environment with single Pinnacle user and a 5-beam IMRT plan. Excluding time for optional manual adjustments.
  • 2. Accurate means 95th percentile modified Hausdorff distance <5mm compared to contours made by experts manually. Average distance is measured as average modified Hausdorff distance compared to contours made by experts manually.
  • 4. Based on 49 cases (each for anatomical prostate, bladder, rectum, penile bulb and femur heads).
  • 5. 1-click is possible when automated contours are acceptable without modification.
