Contouring Overview

ProKnow DS allows you to use a distributed workforce for contouring so that people located anywhere can focus on their assigned anatomical structures. Contouring with ProKnow DS is useful in many different use cases:

  • Creating new structure sets for prospective contouring, upstream of treatment plan optimization
  • Adding and editing structure sets retrospectively to facilitate clinical trials where the original contours may have been incomplete or inaccurate
  • Contouring on 3D IGRT per-fraction image sets (CBCT, onboard MR, etc.) for convenient offline adaptive analyses of volumes that change from fraction to fraction

ProKnow preserves all versions of saved structure sets, which eliminates the risk of losing hours of contouring work due to human or software errors, a problem that is not uncommon when using conventional software systems.
