Philips UKI held a user group meeting at the University of Warwick, where it introduced the new version of Pinnacle3 Treatment Planning system, Pinnacle3 16.  Titled ‘Getting to know Pinnacle3 16 and Solaris 11,’ the meeting took place over two days and covered technical and clinical aspects of the equipment.  Pinnacle3 16 is equipped with intensity modulated proton therapy (IMPT) and deformable image registration modules (DIR), and comes with a refreshed user interface.

The first day included an introduction to the new Pinnacle3 graphical user interface and desktop.  After a presentation on dynamic planning in Pinnacle3 16 by Philips UKI clinical scientist Nigel Deshpande, delegates gained hands-on experience of Pinnacle3 deformable image registration and adaptive re-planning.  Day one ended with a presentation on basic to advanced scripting and a round-table discussion and workshop on optional scripting.
