INTDose Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance


Lexington, KY – Carina Medical LLC announced that it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for INTDose. INTDose is a Monte Carlo (MC)-based software for independent dose verification in radiotherapy treatment planning. Monte Carlo simulation is regarded as the gold standard for estimating the amount of energy deposited into a medium by ionizing radiation; however, the clinical utility of using MC simulations for independent dose calculations is often hindered by the computational resources and time required to run these simulations. INTDose provides a solution to these bottlenecks by utilizing virtual source models and parallel processing to provide a high speed and accurate validation of treatment plans for delivery methods including TomoTherapy, conventional Varian Linac IMRT, VMAT, and Varian Halcyon. The product also includes a user-friendly private-cloud-based interface, a fully automated workflow, and scripting compatibility with Varian's Eclipse treatment planning system (TPS) to allow for the incorporation into clinical workflows with high customizability.
