Contouring with more consistent initial results that match your clinical guidelines positively impacts quality and standardization in treatment pre-planning.
During a MIM Software contouring workshop, 29 experienced dosimetrists drew contours on a brachial plexus structure, resulting in a wide range of variability.
This inconsistency in hand-drawn contours is common.
Contouring consistency is possible with AI auto-contouring, which allows all dosimetrists to begin with a baseline that's aligned with clinical guidelines.
AI auto-contouring in tools such as Contour ProtégéAI™ offers significant improvements in consistency, quality, and time savings in cases of varying complexity. Contour ProtégéAI is clinically implemented in hospitals worldwide and is available now.
