This webinar will demonstrate planning tools available for the Gamma Knife, such as inverse optimization, which can be used to improve plan consistency and quality and, remote access that allow users to contribute and explore plans from any location.

Plan comparisons will be made between manually created clinical plans by an expert planner and inverse optimized plans using the Lightning software.

Following this, we will discuss the potential impact of Lightning optimized plans on treatment delivery and explore techniques to verify delivery of these plans using Gafchromic film.

The webinar, hosted by Benjamin Earner, concludes with a discussion of various real-world scenarios that benefit from remote access in the clinic and how these can improve patient care and user experience.
