2 I have a dream! We have a dream, that one day, We can buy any radiation therapy hardware or software, plug and play! We have a dream! --Jay Cooper --Prabhakar Tripuraneni --Phillip Devlin

3 Ever Frustrated with Connectivity?

4 Have you ever had any connectivity problems with Radiation Oncology hardware and software? Would you like to buy hardware and software from different vendors and still be able to use it? If yes, why don’t you?

5 IHE-RO: The Concept Hell is a place where nothing connects. - T S Eliot

6 Radiation Therapy is a Complex Process With Many Parts … And We All Want The Best

7 The Risk Of Choosing Each “Best Of Breed” Is the Tower of Babel

8 I Want To Buy Equipment I Can Plug In My Network And Not Worry About The Shape of The Plug!

9 We Need To Agree on Standards of Interchange

10 A nd Not “Creatively Apply” The Standards

11 IHE-RO BASICS IHE-RO does not & will not dictate what a product does IHE-RO ONLY specifies how a product interacts with other products For example …

12 Jaguar, Lexus, Mercedes, BMW Unique non-interchangeable parts, but … Gasoline, oil, etc. non-specific Choices for tires. Compete on features!

13 What Is IHE-RO? IHE-RO = Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise in Radiation Oncology Global effort of radiotherapy healthcare professionals, societies and vendors to improve interoperability in radiation oncology domain

14 IHE-RO A multi-specialty, -society, -national initiative to integrate radiotherapy equipment and patient health information systems The IHE-RO initiative is driven forward by both a Planning and Technical Committee

21 IHE–RO What does it do for you? Improves the connectivity of various radiation oncology hardware and software products Improves radiation oncology work flow Helps you to select products based on features, productivity and cost efficiency Helps vendors to focus on improving patient care instead of solving interface and connectivity problems

22 IHE-RO Process

23 IHE-RO process Identify interoperability problems Specify integration profiles Test integration profiles at Connectathon Publish integration profiles for use in RFPs(Request for Proposal)

24 IHE-RO 2006 Connectathon Washington DC

25 IHE-RO 2007 Connectathon Washington DC NucletronVarian Philips Tomotherapy Impac CMS Brainlab Elekta

26 IHE-RO 2008 Connectathon Houston TX

27 Proposed Use Cases Simple Treatment Planning Use Dose Compositing Residual Dose Optimization Image Fusion for Dose Review On-line Image Review Off-line Image Review Treatment Delivery Workflow Instance-level Query-Retrieve Configuration Management Advanced Integration Objects Clinical Trial Submissions Prescription Automation Transfer of Anatomy/Aperture Data for Localization User Authentication and Authorization Registration Data Transfer Radiotherapy Planning and Treatment Record Structure Template Creation, Import And Export Brachytherapy Integration with Proton Therapy Bronchoscopy position data transfer Radiation Oncology Schedule Workflow (ROSWF)  Use cases are prioritized in a multi-year roadmap

28 IHE-RO Progress Imaging Study Contouring System Simulation System Planning Workstation Rad Onc IMS Treatment Delivery Treatment Verification

29 IHE-RO Achievements Objective #1  Reduce DICOM RT connectivity problems in CT- simulation and Treatment Planning domain Objective #2  Break the CT-simulation and Treatment Planning tasks to smaller, well-defined tasks (actors) Contouring, image registration, geometric planning, dose calculation, dose display  Define how the communication between these tasks (actors) happens Enables you to choose the best of all treatment planning tools in the market place, and connect them reliably together

30 Example of Benefits - Retreat Patient With Confidence Available patient dosimetry information from previous treatment using a different TPS is often inadequate IHE-RO unifies information format of treatment and dosimetry in RT devices  You can view the plan and dosimetry of previous RT on your TPS  Design the best new treatment plan for your patient. DRR of previous RT Planned new RT

31 Success Stories from Formal Connectathon “At the IHE-RO Formal Connectathon,  We were able to take a head and neck patient CT, draw contours on Brainlab, place a non-co- planar beam on Brainlab, dose plan on Philips, dose display on Varian, archiving and distributing with Impac.  For the prostate patient CT, we drew contours on TomoTherapy, beam placement and dose plan on CMS, and displayed on Elekta.”* *Real life examples of Interconnectivity among Radiation Oncology Systems

32 Formal Connecthaton Results ( )

33 IHE-RO 2009 (Future) Treatment Delivery Workflow Problem  New techniques, like IGRT, are difficult to implement due to lack of standardized data and workflow between products Objective  Break the treatment deliver process to well-defined tasks (actors)  Standardize the data and workflow between information management system, patient positioning device, treatment delivery device, and mass data storage Benefits  Single clinic-wide schedule  Centralized DICOM RT data storage to manage e.g. rapidly increasing image data  Smooth IGRT and adaptive therapy workflow in both single and multiple system/vendor Tx environments

34 How IHE-RO Helps You Purchasing Products? You’ll get the product connectivity you wanted  Specify your connectivity needs using IHE-RO terminology, which is also unambiguously understood by the vendors  Vendors are required to publish IHE Integration Statement Describes what tasks in the radiation oncology workflow the product is able to perform in terms of connectivity States the version number (or estimated release date), when the product conforms the IHE-RO specifications Use IHE-RO Integration Profiles in your RFP (Request for Proposal) –process

35 IHE-RO Integration Profiles Technical Descriptions Simple Treatment Planning -profile  Data flow of DICOM images and treatment planning data, from CT scan through contouring, for 3D conformal planning and dose display of external beam radiation therapy.  The emphasis is to reduce ambiguity and facilitate basic interoperability in the exchange of DICOM RT objects. Information Exchange Between (Actors) :  CT Scanner Performs CT Imaging and is able to export CT images  Contourer Is able to import CTs & contours, perform contouring, and export CT images & contours  Geometric Planner Is able to import CTs & contours, perform beam geometry planning, and export geometric plan  Dosimetric Planner Is able to import CT, contours & geometric plan, perform dose calculation, and export plan & dose distribution  Dose Displayer Is able to import CT, contours, geometric plan, dose distribution, and display the dose  Archive Is able to import & export CT images, contours, geometric plan, and dose distribution

36 IHE-RO Integration Profiles Technical Descriptions Multi-Modality Image Registration -profile  Specifies how images, RT Structure Sets, RT Doses, and associated spatial registration information can be exchanged, stored, processed and displayed Information Exchange Between (Actors) :  Registrator Is able to import image sets, perform spatial registration between the image sets, and export spatial registration information  Registered Display Is able to import image sets, contours, spatial registration information, and display the registered images  Registered Dose Display Is able to import image sets, contours, spatial registration information, dose distributions, and display the registered images and dose distributions  Registered Contourer Is able to import image sets, contours and spatial registration information, perform image registration and contouring (on registered images), and export contours and spatial registration information  Archive Is able to import & export CT images, spatial registration information and contours

37 Purchase Situation- Example #1 Your clinic is evaluating new treatment planning systems Y & Z  You are getting quite many referrals (complicated cases; patients already received RT in the past) from one of the satellite hospitals, which is using product X  You want to make sure you are able to review the dose distributions from the treatment planning system X (used in the other clinic) with your new planning system Your requirements to the vendors (as part of RFP)  Request vendors of products Y & Z to provide an integration statement, which includes dose displayer  Request vendor of product X (as part of the upgrade) to provide an integration statement, which includes dosimetric planner
