Copy VMAT Fields

Sep 3, 2014 at 12:01 AM
Hi,

In External Beam Planning v13, how do you copy vmat fields from one patient to another patient?

I see edit > copy field seems to only work if you are within one patient, but how to do this for another patient that is different?

Hi henrywang41, is this a programming question, or an application feature question?

If feature question, please contact the Varian helpdesk.

If programming question, one way to do this would be with ESAPI v13 and later, research mode, standalone executable. You'd have to programmatically open the patient you want as the source for the copy, find the plan you want to copy, cache the VMAT beams you want to copy into some sort of data structure designed for that purpose, then close the source patient, open your target patient, create the plan copy with Course.AddExternalPlanSetup, create VMAT beams with PlanSetup.AddVMATBeam, fill in the details.
