OnQ rts
Weighed down by contouring for IMRT? Want to do adaptive re-planning but contouring time prohibits?
OnQ rts has been developed by OSL to help you save time for contouring and re-contouring OnQ has single click automation for atlas-based auto contouring and adaptive re-contouring OnQ has a powerful task scheduler with full automation so contouring, fusion and imaging tasks can be batched and timed off-line with no human intervention OnQ learns as more cases are contoured, increasing consistency and accuracy

NEW auto contouring software

Triple fusion for multi modality images

Automate the complex. Reclaim your time.

OnQ, developed by OSL, has been designed from day one to meet the growing demands placed on clinicians for contouring for IMRT and other techniques such as SBRT, and adaptive RT. OSLs main goal has been to develop software that not only automates tasks, but also streamlines workflows. It is now possible to combine multi modality images for fusion, even when one is supine and one prone, or one image is longer than the other, with only a single click action. Atlas-based auto contouring is also initiated with a single command. The only intervention required is for clinicians to review and possibly edit the final contours. More than 60 structures can be automatically generated for a head and neck case.

Want to account for curved couch tops for MR or PET fusion? Want to perform elastic image registration for pre and post op planning?

One click to contour. One click to fuse.

OnQ performs rigid and deformable image registration for CT-MR, CT-PET and for IGRT images OnQ automatically generates SUV-based GTVs on PET images OnQ accounts for differences in curved and flat couch tops and anatomy shape and size when co-registering images OnQ is valuable for tracking anatomy changes during the whole clinical imaging process from diagnosis-planning-IGRT-followup

Not sure how to QA auto contouring and advanced fusion algorithms? Wondering how to QA the contour quality of the atlas library?

Contour analysis and QA tools at the heart of OnQ.

OnQ has integrated QA tools to commission and test the system, and your contouring performance! OnQ analysis can be integrated into your workflow with automated results and error histograms Having previously launched ImSimQA, the ground breaking QA software for atlas-based auto contouring and image fusion registration, we have now brought that know-how into the heart of OnQ. These analysis tools are integrated into the clinical software and can be used to compare user contouring performance, and also system commissioning. They can also be used to validate deformable image registration performance. A powerful and unique toolkit.

NEW Pioneer
Relocatable radiotherapy
Oncology Systems Limited has developed the only relocatable radiotherapy treatment suite outside of North America, Pioneer. Pioneer can be used as a satellite radiotherapy centre, a support suite during new build or refurbishment, as an expansion to an existing centre or a stand alone service. Pioneer can be delivered with OSL Remote, a high quality commissioning, remote outlining, treatment planning and QA service. The relocatable, stand alone radiotherapy treatment suite accommodates a TomoTherapy Hi-Art or TomoHD treatment machine and any necessary treatment planning software, patient positioning accessories and quality assurance systems.

No build
Removing the need for expensive capital expenditure for new treatment bunkers, Pioneer can be rapidly deployed complete with all the patient and equipment accessories necessary to run a clinical service. The small scanner-like footprint of TomoTherapy, plus its inherent radiation shielding, provide the worlds first mega voltage external beam radiotherapy system capable of being rapidly installed and deployed for all types of cancer cases, both routine and more challenging.

Rapid start-up and service continuity

Planning, designing and building a new radiotherapy facility, can take several years. Pioneer opens up the possibility of no loss of clinical service and revenue whilst existing treatment machines are decommissioned and new ones installed. TomoTherapy with its complete integrated solution, as utilised worldwide, has seen the most rapid start-up of radiotherapy of any modern technology.

Pioneers relocatable potential means that the complete suite can be relocated after a minimum period, meeting the needs of currently under-served populations with poor access to, and uptake of radiotherapy. The sheer quality of IG-IMRT delivered by TomoTherapy ensures that the best radiotherapy available in the world today, reaches more people.

Remote planning
Technology advances mean that many time consuming tasks, critical to delivering radiotherapy, can be performed remotely, away from the treatment suite. Pioneer, offers the potential for remote planning services, such as outlining and plan creation, to be provided off-site. Plan QA results can be measured on-site but analysed off-site. A main cancer centre can manage these remote services for a satellite.

The TomoTherapy radiotherapy treatment system was built for simplicity and ease of use. Smart design and a single, common database drive a completely integrated process for delivering state-of-the-art radiotherapy treatments. Combining image-guided and intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IG-IMRT), the treatment system offers greater precision, accuracy and assurance to cancer care.


Radiotherapy Services

Remote Planning
OSL Remote eases the burden and costs associated with the time consuming yet critical tasks required to plan and check a patients radiotherapy course prior to the start of treatment. These complex tasks do not require direct patient contact and so can, with modern technology, be performed remote from the hospital. With decades of experience in clinical treatment planning, medical physics, IT and networking and education of radiotherapy professionals, OSL is perfectly placed to deliver this option. Experienced clinical staff employed by OSL, provide remote outlining and treatment plan options, plus analysis of plan QA results. All images, plans and reports are then reviewed electronically back at the hospital for approval.

Room Planning & Design

OSL works closely with customers, architects, services and structural engineers and contractors in planning, designing and the building of bunkers and associated rooms for installation of linear accelerators. OSL will work closely with the design team or alternatively we can use our own design team for a full turnkey solution.
