Accuray has released an iPad app for use by physicians to review and approve treatment plans for the company’s popular CyberKnife radiation therapy system.
Since many hospitals and clinics are already using iPads in their practice, the new PlanTouch app, which received 510(k) clearance from the FDA, will save physicians time by not having them go to the CyberKnife workstation for review every time a patient undergoes treatment.
From the announcement:
PlanTouch’s interface is fully integrated with the CyberKnife System’s data management and planning software. Physicians can now review dose volume histograms, isodose curves, contours, and images and approve treatment plans directly from their iPads. This new mobile solution can enable improved collaboration between the radiation oncologist and referring physicians, such as thoracic surgeons, urologists and neurosurgeons. Physicians are no longer tied to planning workstations, but instead can access treatment plans remotely, wherever and whenever they need to, ensuring a seamless and efficient workflow. The ability not only to review, but also to approve a treatment plan is a function not available with any other tablet-based radiation oncology application on the market today.
