Varian has announced customers using Varian Eclipse treatment planning software placed the highest in the overall category in the first-ever World Championships of Treatment Planning, hosted by ProKnow. In addition to the top four and six of the top 10 positions in the overall category, Eclipse customers also had the top three scoring VMAT plans.
The objective of the World Championships of Treatment Planning is to determine which planner and planning system can produce the highest quality plan in a rigorous and limited timeframe. Professionals from over 30 countries all competed at the same time and were given four hours to create treatment plans, score them online, and submit their best effort. A description of the body site, physician prescription and the plan scoring algorithm were provided to participants in advance, and plan scoring was unbiased and objective, powered by the cloud-based ProKnow system.
