SU‐E‐T‐247: Design and Implement of the Radiation Therapy Case Conference Multi‐Media System Based On Windows Remote Desktop Feature


Conference Paper

Purpose: To explore a method of using a computer system for multi‐media cases conference in clinical radiation oncology, in order to replace the traditional use of film images and paper. Methods: In a conference room without any treatment planning system(TPS), on a dedicated networked computer, we use Remote Desktop feature of Windows XP to remote access an Varian Eclipse TPS and the radiation therapy information management system (RTIMS), which is an in‐house developed system based on the flow of radiation therapy. Then in this room, we can online read the information of CT images, target volumes, treatment plans, electronic medical records and etc, and project it on the screen. Results: There has been half a year since we successfully set up a radiation therapy case conference multi‐media system(RTCCMMS) in the department. With this method, we can share the TPS in another room, and do not need buy another TPS. It is convenient and effective that the oncologists and physicists conduct a collective case discussion. Conclusion: This method required equipments are simple, and it is a safe and reliable technology, greatly improving the clinical efficiency and quality of medical care.
