"Evaluation of semiempirical VMAT dose reconstruction on a patient dataset based on biplanar diode array measurements," V. Feygelman et al., J Appl Clin Med. Phys. 15(2) (2014) ›

Abstract
We report the results of a preclinical evaluation of recently introduced commercial tools for 3D patient IMRT/VMAT dose reconstruction, the Delta4 Anatomy calculation algorithm. Based on the same initial measurement, volumetric dose can be reconstructed in two ways. Three-dimensional dose on the Delta4 phantom can be obtained by renormalizing the planned dose distribution by the measurement values (D4 Interpolation). Alternatively, incident fluence can be approximated from the phantom measurement and used for volumetric dose calculation on an arbitrary (patient) dataset with a pencil beam algorithm (Delta4 PB). The primary basis for comparison was 3D dose obtained by previously validated measurement-guided planned dose perturbation method (ACPDP), based on the ArcCHECK dosimeter with 3DVH software.

Product Listing Classification Revision – US only

As an FDA registered medical device manufacturer, Sun Nuclear provides an FDA product listing classification for all medical devices that it manufactures. Sun Nuclear is revising the product listing classification for MapCHECK 2, ArcCHECK, EPIDose, and 3DVH devices in the US, and until this classification is complete, these devices are only available to customers outside the US. An application to reclassify these devices under 21CFR892.5050 (Medical charged-particle radiation therapy system) versus the prior 21CFR892.1940 (Radiologic quality assurance instrument) is in process. We are hopeful that reclassification will be complete in July 2013. This reclassification does not affect current users of MapCHECK 2, ArcCHECK, EPIDose, and 3DVH. If you have any questions on this, please contact us.
