Plane Location Window

In the plane location window you can precisely position and orient the meridian and coronal dosimetry planes. The buttons automatically adjust the plane to pass through various locations such as suture eyelets or the tumor apex.

From the Setup Menu select.

PlaneLocation

or the Plot menu:

PlaneLocation
PlaneLocationWindow

Toolbar controls:

  • Plaque - Selects the currently active plaque.
  • Lock - Locks all 2D planes for all plaques at their current locations and disables all controls that vary plane location across all windows and menus.

Other controls:

  • Planes track plaque motion - when checked, the meridian and coronal dosimetry planes will automatically adjust to pass through the center of the plaque as it moves. Enabled by default.

Move coronal dosimetry plane to: controls group

  • Synchronize plaques - If enabled, a manually set coronal plane x-axis offset is copied to all plaques. When disabled, the coronal plane x-axis offset from the equator must be set independently for each plaque. Dosimetry plane autotracking overrides synchronization and always assumes independent dosimetry planes for each plaque.
  • Presets group
    • Equator - translates the coronal plane to the equator.
    • Tumor Apex - translates the coronal plane to pass through the tumor apex.
    • Plaque Center - translates the coronal plane to pass through the plaque center.
    • T-Cor. Image - translates the coronal plane match the position of the tumor coronal image.
    • Tumor Base - translates the coronal plane to pass through the center of the tumor base.
    • Plaque Eyelets - .

Move meridian dosimetry plane to: controls group

  • Synchronize plaques - If enabled, a manually set meridian plane angle is copied to all plaques. When disabled, the plane angle must be set independently for each plaque. Dosimetry plane autotracking overrides synchronization and always assumes independent dosimetry planes for each plaque.
  • Flip 180° - rotates plane 180°.
  • Presets group
    • Axial Meridian - rotates meridian plane to be the axial plane.
    • Sagittal Meridian - rotates meridian plane to be the sagittal plane.
    • Plaque Center - rotates meridian plane to pass through the plaque center.
    • Tumor Apex - rotates meridian plane to pass through the tumor apex.
    • Tumor Base - rotates meridian plane to pass through the center of the tumor base.
    • T-Mer. Image - rotates the meridian plane to match the position of the tumor meridian image.
  • Intersect suture eyelet groupo group
    • A1..B1 - rotates meridian plane to pass through suture eyelet.

Move miscellaneous dosimetry plane to: controls group

The miscellaneous dosimetry plane is similar to a meridian plane that it initially rotates around the X-axis (AP) of the eye in the manner of a true meridian plane but differs in that after rotation the plane center may be offset (translated) from the center of the eye.

  • Synchronize plaques - If enabled, a manually set miscellaneous plane angle is copied to all plaques. When disabled, the plane angle must be set independently for each plaque.
  • Flip 180° - rotates plane 180°.
  • Offset plane center group
    • X - X offset of plane center from eye center.
    • Y - Y offset of plane center from eye center.
    • Z - Z offset of plane center from eye center.
