ELEMENTS segmentAtion cranial

Elemental to treatment planning, Elements Segmentation Cranial flexibly adapts to various anatomies and modalities, contouring anatomical structures with high consistency and accuracy.

  • Anatomical mapping of cranial MR datasets with thorough matching of all tissue classes
  • Labeling of literally every voxel – leaves no room for blind spots and makes anatomical registration universally transparent
  • Unique technology based on a patented Synthetic Tissue Model that manages imaging and anatomical diversity
  • Automatic segmentation of all relevant anatomical brain structures for high quality treatment plans
  • Efficient and consistent automation of time-consuming contouring process
  • Intuitive, easy-to-use review and editing tools
Image Fusion with Cranial Distortion Correction

Elements Image Fusion with Cranial Distortion Correction

MR Distortion Correction* for more accurate co-registrations enables high-precision contouring and fibertracking across modalities. Deformable co-registration with distinct focus compensates for distortions in MR datasets.

  • Multi-modal deformable co-registration of cranial MR datasets to a reference CT or MR
  • Enables tumor outlining on distortion-corrected MRs for better SRS target definition
  • Correction of DTI sequences to increase fibertracking precision
  • Quality assurance by visualizing the location and magnitude of MR distortions
  • Immediate comparison of rigid vs. distortion corrected results
Smartbrush - quick and easy volumetric outlining

elements SMARTBRUSH

Elements SmartBrush provides interactive, multi-planar 3D tumor contouring, enabling the quick and easy volumetric outlining of pathologies and anatomical structures in medical images.

  • Anomaly detection eases the initial setup
  • Intelligent interpolation and contour propagation
  • Multi-modal contouring in Side by Side Views
  • Tumor Volume Report with calculation of RECIST and McDonald criteria
Smartbrush Angio - Fast Definition of a Cranial Nidus

elements SMARTBRUSH ANGIO

Elements Smartbrush Angio** is dedicated to faster and more comprehensive definition of a cranial nidus. Automatic color-coding of the blood flow in 2D dynamic angiographies allows for clear visual differentiation of the nidus from related arteries and draining veins. An innovative fusion with focus on vascular structures co-registers additional 3D data and subsequently enables multi-modal nidus definition.

  • Support of diagnostic 2D dynamic angiographies even without localizer
  • Color-coded blood flow to differentiate nidus from related arteries and draining veins
  • Automatic 3D vessel segmentation in contrast enhanced volumetric image sets
  • Vascular co-registration matching 3D data to unlocalized 2D dynamic angiographies
  • Automatic volumetric nidus segmentation and seamless refinement possibilities
Fibertracking - Enrichment of Anatomical Maps

elements Fibertracking

With Elements Fibertracking users are able more than ever to easily enrich anatomical images with detailed information about relevant white matter structures.

  • Processes and visualizes Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) data to advance treatment planning
  • New Brain Projection view enables direct review and direct functional planning by creating a region of interest on the Cortex
  • Region-of-interest based tracking using built-in ROI brush, semi-automatic or automatic segmentation
  • Conversion of results into 3D objects for use as objects at risk with RT applications
