University of California San Diego EZFluence Case Study
Planning whole breast treatments using field-in-field or electronic compensator techniques has become commonplace, and for good reason. These types of plans typically have better coverage and smaller hot-spot volumes, without using bulky wedges, which often results in shorter treatment times for patients as well.
However, planning using these techniques is an iterative process involving multiple calculations and plan assessments before arriving at an ideal plan. In an attempt to streamline their breast planning workflow, the University of California San Diego (USCD) assessed the efficacy of EZFluence as a solution for automating 3D planning.
Download the case study to see how UCSD was able to not only save time and improve plan quality using EZFluence, but also expedite the sim-to-start schedule for breast cases.
“The speed of planning and consistent plan quality are the strongest features of EZFluence. This technology may be able to significantly reduce the time and resources required to produce high quality whole breast plans and facilitate an accelerated, efficient treatment planning workflow.”
