Quotes

“Over the last decade, technology innovations in radiation therapy have enabled more efficient treatments. The targeting precision of the latest linear accelerators require excellent imaging in order to create accurate treatment plans. Imaging technology therefore followed this evolution while workflow and access to planning tools and imaging information was not always optimal. With the MD Connect solution, GE Healthcare enables access to these oncology tools and clinical images anywhere in the oncology department, bringing patient information and oncology application tools directly to the physicist, medical oncologist and other oncology caregivers. Information regarding the patient’s treatment defined by each specialist is now available at anytime, anywhere, by anyone, enabling a better quality of treatment.”
Pascal Fenoglietto, Head of Research and Development and Head of Physics department at CRLC Val d'Aurelle in Montpellier, France.
