Compatibility with Medical Devices and Software
Compatible Brainlab Platforms
Adaptive Hybrid Surgery Analysis is compatible with the following Brainlab platforms:
Buzz 1.0, 2.0
Curve 1.0, 1.1, 1.2
Other Brainlab Platforms
Additional compatible Brainlab platforms may become available after release of this user guide. Contact Brainlab support if you have any questions regarding compatibility.
Compatible Non-Brainlab Medical Devices
This software can export to record and verify systems using the DICOM format.
DICOM conformance statements can be found at
DICOM, by itself, does not guarantee interoperability. However, the Conformance Statement facilitates a first-level validation for interoperability between different applications supporting the same DICOM functionality. The Conformance Statement should be read and understood by the user in conjunction with the DICOM standard.
According to IEC 62266 “Guidelines for implementation of DICOM in radiotherapy,” chapter 11 “Caution to Users”: “[…] purchasers of radiation oncology equipment must verify that their equipment will actually communicate with other equipment and successfully transfer information using the DICOM protocols and definitions.”
Third-Party DICOM Interfaces
Due to the diversity of the DICOM standard it is possible that certain plans created by third-party treatment planning software cannot be loaded entirely.
Verify all data imported by the Brainlab application for completeness and correctness as different interpretations of the DICOM standard may lead to different implementations for representing the data conveyed by the DICOM protocol.
As the DICOM standard does not provide a means to verify whether the integrity of a DICOM file was compromised before import into the Brainlab system, you are advised to utilize DICOM transfer via network only. This ensures that the data cannot easily be manipulated during data exchange. If DICOM data is written as files to any storage media, it is recommended to treat this information with the same care as any written or printed patient records in order to avoid any kind of manipulation.
Compatible Brainlab Medical Software
Only Brainlab medical software specified by Brainlab may be installed and used with the system. Contact Brainlab support for clarification regarding compatibility with Brainlab medical software.
Authorized Third-Party Medical Software
It is acceptable to install and run the following medical software on the same workstation as
Adaptive Hybrid Surgery Analysis
Third-Party Medical Software
RayStation manufactured by RaySearch Laboratories AB
Treatment planning system for radiation therapy.
InverseArc manufactured by RaySearch Laboratories AB
Transforms treatment plans into equivalent VMAT (Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy) plans.
Other Non-Brainlab Software
Brainlab recommends to only utilize systems that exchange registrations as recommended by Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise – Radiation Oncology (IHE-RO) (
http://www.ihe.net/) profile on Multimodality Registration for Radiation Oncology. The definitions provided in this document have been defined by a group of clinicians and vendors and address clinical workflows and related security considerations.
Brainlab does not permit the installation of RT Elements on platforms with third-party medical software installed. This is because it cannot be excluded that the RT Elements influence the third-party software, and vice versa. It is the user’s responsibility to provide and identify suitable platforms fulfilling the given requirements for the installation of the RT Elements.
Brainlab strongly recommends to have no third-party software installed on the platform because third-party software can affect the performance of the RT Elements. It is the user’s responsibility to verify that the RT Elements are not affected by any third-party software installations or third-party software updates – for this purpose, the software revalidation instructions provided in this user guide may be used.
If requested, the
Adaptive Hybrid Surgery Analysis workstation can be equipped with remote access to Brainlab support. Brainlab Remote Service with iHelp 6.1 (Axeda) is available.
