Predictive Planning

Introducing Predictive Planning
from Oncospace

Oncospace Predictive Planning uses a machine learning model based on thousands of clinical treatment plans to derive achievable, best-practice, dosimetric goals for plan optimization and evaluation.

NEW for ASTRO 2022

Predictive Planning* Support for Head and Neck provides

 

Significantly lower or statistically equivalent OAR mean dose

“Our robust model considers many factors related to the
spatial relationship between targets and OARs and
excels at a wide variety of unique and complex patient geometries
– including outliers.

This allows one head and neck model to support many
different protocols covering the full range of
anatomic target sites with varying levels of
unilateral and bilateral lymph node involvement.”

- Todd McNutt, Ph.D.,

Chief Scientist, Oncospace, Inc.
In Oncospace, Predictive Planning makes use of sophisticated machine learning models built to support a wide range of flexible protocols.
For a given anatomical treatment site like prostate, these models support protocols for target volumes that may include the prostate bed, or lymph nodes, or not, and delivery options like SIB, hypofractionation, and SBRT.
For H&N planning these models support protocols with target volumes in various anatomies, in unilateral or bilateral configurations, and deliveries with multiple dose levels.
What might be separate models with alternate knowledge-based approaches, and the curating, training, and validating they entail, is covered out of the box cloud with Predictive Planning.

For example, above is a comparison of the original plan and a plan made with objectives predicted by Oncospace. Using Oncospace predicted objectives allowed the opportunity for a plan to be created that had better target coverage, improved sparing of the brain and brain stem, and consistent sparing of the left parotid.

Questions Remain

With all the technology, talent, and know-how in a radiation oncology practice, questions still remain

  • What impact will my decisions have on this patient’s plan?
  • How do I know errors are being found and corrected?
  • How do I know this is what the physician wants?
  • How do I mitigate risks in the practice?
  • How do I effectively protect the hospital network and patient data while ensuring user performance?
 
Oncospace turns questions into confidence.

What impact will my decisions have on this patient’s plan?

  • Examine a range of predictions from “Best Achievable” to “Typically Achievable
  • Determine the most appropriate planning strategy
  • Set patient specific clinical goals and planning objectives

“Predicting achievable dose objectives in Oncospace before we start radiation therapy planning will remove the guesswork that slows us down.

We can begin with the end in mind and take confidence that the final plans will meet the high quality we expect.”

Scott Robertson, Ph.D.,

Medical Physicist, Wellspan Health

How do I know errors are being found and corrected?

  • Create or customize pre-defined templates of clinical goals, prescriptions, and delivery methods
  • Correct contour and prescription anomalies
  • Avoid unrealistic clinical goals and planning objectives

How do I know this is what the physician wants?

  • Access a shared resource detailing physician defined, patient specific, planning requirements
  • Drive planning with clear, prediction* defined objectives, clinical goals, prescriptions, and delivery methods
  • Compare TPS results to clinical goals and predictions

How do I mitigate risks in the practice?

  • Modernize Pinnacle archive data: accessible for retreatments and continuity of care
  • Minimize “Time on TPS” with predicted* achievable plan optimization objectives at the start
  • Ensure consistency across users and locations with a common, robust prediction model

How do I effectively protect the hospital network and patient data while ensuring user performance?

  • Built cloud-first on Microsoft Azure
  • Performs PHI de-identification prior to secure cloud upload with On-premises component
  • ISO 27001 Information Security Management Certified
