Software, Workstation Management, Radiotherapy Treatment

Definition : Software designed to operate radiotherapy treatment workstations, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data and images obtained during radiotherapy treatment performance or simulation procedures. This software usually interacts with the radiotherapy units or systems using during the procedure, (e.g., recorders, linear accelerators, and automated brachytherapy systems). It may also perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed and images obtained during the radiotherapy procedure. Radiotherapy workstation management software is intended to work only with one or a few models of workstations and related devices usually supplied by the same manufacturer. This facilitates the processing and/or sending of data from the workstation to and from picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and/or other hospital information systems. The software is not usually available separate from the workstation but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment.
