The paper describes a new CT based 3D virtual simulator system called EXOMIO that has been developed at the Institut für Graphische Datenverarbeitung [Fraunhofer IGD] in collaboration with the Department of Radiation Oncology of the Klinikum Offenbach. The system is based on low cost and widely available hardware [PC]: unlike the other commercially available systems that depend on expensive workstations. It provides high quality and high performance visualisation tools. It can be connected via a network to any DICOM supporting CT or MR scanner and via DICOM-RT supplements it enables support for a treatment planning system and for a verification system for linear accelerators. Finally, a prostate cancer case history is given as an example of a clinical application of EXOMIO.
