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:

Meridian plane group:

  • Synchronize Meridian Planes If enabled, manually set meridian plane angles are copied to all plaques. When disabled, the meridian plane angle must be set independently for each plaque. Dosimetry plane autotracking overrides synchronization and always assumes independent dosimetry planes for each plaque.
  • 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.
  • Axial Meridian - rotates meridian plane to be the axial plane.
  • Sagittal Meridian - rotates meridian plane to be the sagittal plane.
  • T-Mer. Image - rotates the meridian plane to match the position of the tumor meridian image.
  • Rotate 180° - rotates meridian plane 180°.
  • A1..B1 - rotates meridian plane to pass through suture eyelet.

Coronal plane group:

  • Synchronize Coronal Planes If enabled, manually set coronal plane x-axis offsets are 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.
  • Plaque Center - translates the coronal plane to pass through the plaque center.
  • Tumor Apex - translates the coronal plane to pass through the tumor apex.
  • Tumor Base - translates the coronal plane to pass through the center of the tumor base.
  • T-Cor. Image - translates the coronal plane match the position of the tumor coronal image.
  • Equator - translates the coronal plane to the equator.

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.
