Geometrics Corp. was founded in 1992 by Mark Gehring, Cameron Sanders, Paul Reckwerdt and The Rock Mackie to commercialize the Stereotactic Radiosurgery Planning System that had been developed at UW-Madison. The software quickly evolved to become the Pinnacle3 Treatment Planning System, and in 1996 Geometrics Corp. was acquired by ADAC Laboratories for $3.9 million. Philips then acquired ADAC Laboratories in 2000. [1]

Current Direction

The newest version of Pinnacle3, P16, was released in 2017. The software features an entirely new GUI with capabilities common to Windows-based programs. Deformable registration was introduced within the Dynamic Planning Module. In the distant future, Philips intends to eventually offer a cloud-based, fully hosted planning solution.
