Abstract: Radiation therapy (RT) is an image intensive treatment. It requires images from projection X-rays, CT, MR, PET for tumor localization, treatment planning and verification of treatment plans. It also needs patient information, images and their processing for tumor localization and dose computation to ensure the delivery of uniform high dose to the target but avoidance of sensitive structures. In these processes, PACS and imaging informatics technologies are used extensively. However, they are not integrated with these technologies as a complete radiation treatment system. Currently RT treatment still relies mostly on tedious manual image and data transfer methods because the community as a whole has not championed the concept of system integration heavily. System integration of RT treatment has many benefits including lower equipment and operation costs, streamline treatment procedures, and better healthcare delivery to the patient. In this paper, we discuss the concept of a DICOM and imaging informatics-based RT server as an attempt to integrate diverse healthcare information systems, imaging modalities and RT equipment into one seamless treatment system.
