The aim of this project is to support Gynecologic Radiation Treatment in AMIGO. Gynecologic malignancies, which include cervical, endometrial, and vaginal/vulvar cancers, are the 4th leading cause of death in women in the US, with 83,750 new cases in the US in 2010 and 26,930 deaths per year. Treatment consists of external beam radiation followed by brachytherapy.
A software prototype supporting Gynecologic Radiation Treatment has already been pre-developed. The pre-developed software prototype has been brought to AMIGO cases and the workflow of the prototype has been discussed with the treating physician.
Currently, a module for Slicer is under development. The module already allows the visualization of a gynecological template for brachytherapy in a preoperative patient dataset. Furthermore, interstitial needles can already be visualized for treatment planning.
