Clinical evaluation of Mirada DLCExpert for head and neck OARs

We aimed to test whether using Mirada DLCExpertTM with an H&N model trained at another institution could improve clinical contouring efficiency for OARs. DLCExpert was used to generate spinal cord, brainstem, and parotid volumes for 10 H&N patients previously contoured by experienced clinical oncologists at our institution. Time taken to generate clinically acceptable contours for all OARs routinely outlined in our institution was prospectively recorded for 9 H&N patients without the use of Mirada, and for 7 patients for whom autocontouring was used. All contouring, reviewing, editing, and scoring of contours was carried out by a consultant clinical oncologist with extensive H&N experience.
