tures) can be attached additionally to this
document The idea:
It shall be possible to compute a DICOM RT Plan based on an
OmniPro Accepts queue. The RT Plan could be sent/loaded to
TCS using the TPS or R&V systems (Monaco and Mosaiq for El-
ekta). The execution of the plan will be automated and will not
require intensive human intervention (only confirming and trig-
gering the beam execution).

Figure 1: Automated Commissioning Workflow

Regarding the RT Plan structure: There shall be one plan per

queue. The plan shall contain a beam for each energy defined in
the queue (one beam for the queue items having the same en-
ergy). For each queue item, a control point shall be created in
that beam matching the queue items energy.

3. IDEA Evaluation (G0- Meeting):
Positive: The idea adds value to existing IBA product portfolio or can contribute to a development of
new product
Intriguing: Idea adds curious things that could be at value for existing IBA product portfolio
Negative: Idea may remove value to existing IBA products
Concerning: Idea worries things that could remove value to existing IBA products
