Paper Abstract

Last year, we presented the infrastructure for a medical imaging informatics DICOM-RT based ePR system for patients treated with Proton Therapy (PT). The ePR has functionality to integrate patients' imaging and informatics data and perform outcomes analysis with patient and physician profiling in order to provide clinical decision support and suggest courses of treatment. In this paper, we present the development of a prototype for the image-guided outcomes analysis for prostate cancer patient based on DICOM-RT ePR. This ePR system, using DICOM-RT and DICOM-ION objects as well as clinical and biological parameters, provides tools to evaluate treatment plans and assess the outcomes of the patient's treatment; hence, it promotes more successful treatment planning for new prostate cancer patients treated with proton therapy.
