Elekta receives 510(k) clearance for MOSAIQ Evaluate, a toolset that integrates
treatment planning features into MOSAIQ OIS
ATLANTA,  Jan. 7, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- As part of a process to completely
integrate the patient's electronic medical record (EMR) with treatment planning
activities, Elekta has introduced MOSAIQ Evaluate*, a toolset that unites plan
and dose review capabilities in a single software framework, MOSAIQ Oncology
Information System (OIS). Uniting MOSAIQ and powerful treatment planning review
capabilities streamlines planning activities inside the patient chart, reducing
patient wait times and delays and improving efficiency and productivity in the
department. Elekta recently received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) for MOSAIQ Evaluate.

"The development of MOSAIQ Evaluate establishes a new standard of oncology
treatment planning management in a single software environment. Our belief is
that clinical decision-making is improved when the radiotherapy team can access
and review treatment and patient data from one source, MOSAIQ," says  Todd
Powell, Executive Vice President,  Elekta Software. "It's the first step in a
process in which we will steadily integrate advanced toolsets inside MOSAIQ,
ultimately creating an advanced, comprehensive treatment planning solution
inside the EMR."

With MOSAIQ Evaluate, the entire radiation oncology team can access and review
treatment plans and patient data from the patient's chart, streamlining the
radiotherapy workflow. It enables plan review from virtually any treatment
planning system and for any treatment modality, in addition to comparison of
multiple plans.  

To support the multidisciplinary team, MOSAIQ Evaluate offers specific benefits
for the radiation oncologist, the physicist and the dosimetrist. Radiation
oncologists and physicists will now be able to review plans at their MOSAIQ
workstation and view a "to-do" list of plans needing review. MOSAIQ Evaluate
also enables the physicist to identify approved plan information side-by-side
with all treatment fields, approve treatment fields directly from the Plan
Worklist, and view imported DRR's alongside the treatment plan. With MOSAIQ
Evaluate, dosimetrists will be able to use the Plan Worklist to identify
approved plans, triggering the next step in the workflow.
