Treatment Planning Software
Rahway Regional Cancer Center is committed to providing unrivaled, personalized cancer treatments using the latest state-of-the-art technologies. At the heart of our radiation therapy systems, treatment planning software is the key to promoting better patient outcomes. Compared to traditional radiation therapy planning, the software we use produces consistent results, reducing planning time and enhancing dose accuracy to provide high-quality cancer treatments.

How It Works
At RRCC, we use one of the most advanced radiotherapy treatment planning systems in the industry – the Philips Pinnacle3 Syntegra – making our facility one of few in the U.S. with image fusion capabilities.
Syntegra enables high-quality image fusion between simulation CT, MRI, PET, cone beam CT and other diagnostic imaging tests. In other words, this technology combines two or more images into one model, allowing board-certified oncologist Dr. Eric Karp and our cancer care team to quickly contour tumors and anatomical structures in 3-D and 4-D. In turn, we can see dose distribution on the multimodality images to aid in radiation treatment delivery.
Benefits of Fusion Technology
The comprehensive treatment planning system at RRCC offers several advantages. For one, Philips Syntegra creates multimodality images that simplify the planning process, aiding in the creation of enhanced radiation therapy treatment plans. The treatment planning software also improves accuracy when delivering radiation therapy for greater effectiveness and a reduction in radiation dose to normal tissues. Most of all, Philips Syntegra allows RRCC to completely tailor the treatment plan to the individual and adapt it as needed.
