The best possible clinical use of treatments using protons (PT) can only be achieved with an accurate prediction of proton range. Several papers have shown that Dual Energy CT (DECT) can contribute to a reduction in CT-related uncertainties and thus minimize the irradiation of healthy tissue.  The new DirectSPR software offers a solution that can be implemented clinically on almost all Single Source and Dual Source CT scanners from Siemens Healthineers.

DirectSPR

enabling fully automated Stopping Power calculation based on Dual Energy images

  • is designed for Siemens SOMATOM Dual Energy scanners1
  • enables accurate and automated SPR calculation on syngo.via1
  • automatically takes into account patient volume to eliminate the need for different HLUTS.
  • differentiate the SPR value of materials that have the same CT value in single energy images.
  • generates CT DICOM modality images so that they can be exported into a TPS.
