Impac, Siemens unite oncology imaging systems with informatics tools
Impac Medical Systems and Siemens Medical Solutions will integrate Impac's oncology management systems with Siemens linear accelerators and oncology workspaces systems.

The companies plan to use a full DICOM-RT compliant specification for the development of an interface to connect Siemens Primus and Oncor linear accelerators and Coherence line of oncology workspace systems with Impac's oncology management system.

The companies say the DICOM-RT standard has been developed specifically for radiation oncology to allow transmittal of data and images between various applications in the radiation oncology arena.
