How to Review and Adjust the Outer Contour
After the initial preparation steps have been performed, the software automatically generates the Outer Contour that is displayed on a separate page. The Outer Contour enables the software algorithm to perform dose calculation for the entire patient tissue.
Review the Outer Contour ① by rotating the 3D view and scrolling through all slices.
The ACS slices display the tissue model consisting of the Outer Contour in blue ② and the couch top model ③ (if a couch top model was previously selected).
The tissue model is shown in gray/white and the original CT in amber ⑤.
If the results are not satisfactory, use the tools in the Outer Contour drop-down menu ④ to edit the blue outline in the axial, sagittal and coronal slices.
You may also select Back ⑥ and modify the Outer Contour using the Crop function.
Select Next ⑦ to proceed.
The Configuration panel opens.
