NEW! What’s New in Patient Marking & Alignment: Laser Systems & Software Update

Wednesday, May 31, 2017, 1:00 PM EST

For 40+ years, Gammex—a Sun Nuclear company—has provided laser solutions for patient marking and alignment. As technology has evolved, our goal remains the same: to provide highly-accurate and reliable platforms that bring added efficiency to the workflow. In 2016, we introduced CT SIM+™ and MICRO+™, next-generation solutions for the CT Simulation and Radiotherapy rooms, respectively. In this webinar, we will review these new offerings and demonstrate RapidSIM™ 3.0, our latest software for CT SIM+, featuring a redesigned interface, increased customization options and new safety features.

NEW! Digital Mammography and Tomosynthesis QC Solutions from Gammex

Tuesday, June 6, 2017, 2:00 PM EST

When the U.S. mandated requirements via the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA), Gammex developed the Mammo 156™ Phantom to achieve repeatability and reproducibility for the detection of breast cancer. Likewise, as Tomosynthesis becomes more prevalent, Gammex offers the first-to-market phantom in support of Tomosynthesis QC - the Modular DBT™ Phantom. Join this session for a preview of upcoming releases and an overview of Gammex's Mammography and Tomosynthesis QC product suite.

NEW! The Importance of Doppler Ultrasound QA

Tuesday, June 20, 2017, 11:00 AM EST

Learn what a Doppler flow phantom can tell you about your ultrasound system. James A. Zagzebski, Ph.D., FAAPM, Professor Emeritus for the University of Wisconsin – Madison Dept. of Medical Physics, will describe uses for the Doppler Flow 403™ Flow Phantom. Produced by Gammex, a Sun Nuclear company, the Doppler 403 Flow Phantom supports Acceptance tests, routine QA testing and training. During this webinar, Dr. Zagzebski will cover: 

  • Doppler effect, dependence of Doppler shift on beam frequency, flow velocity and Doppler angle 
  • Doppler 403 Flow Phantom properties, tubular flow characteristics and profiles, and specifying the flow velocity 
  • Applying angle correct for accurate velocity estimates 
  • Basic Doppler system tests of velocity, directional discrimination, and penetration 
  • Volume flow assessments 
  • Evaluation of automated functions, including auto-angle correct, TAmax, TAmean 
  • Technical system and transducer issues found with Doppler QA 

GIVEAWAY: Attend the webinar for a chance to WIN FREE REJUVENATION of your Doppler Flow Phantom. Three attendants will be chosen after the webinar.

NEW! BEST of 2017 QADS III – Development of Physician-Driven Metrics for a DVH-based Patient Specific QA Program

Thursday, July 6, 2017, 12:00 PM EST

Acknowledging that IMRT radiation therapy QA methods have limitations, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Department of Radiation Oncology introduced a DVH-based QA program requiring physician-driven pass/fail criteria for prostate patients. Join Alex Price, M.S., a Medical Physics Resident at UNC, to learn how a DVH-based QA program combined with the appropriate hardware and software tools can implement more clinically relevant QA and, ultimately, keep patients safe.

NEW! Automation & Integration: Shaping the New Era of QA with SunCHECK

Tuesday, July 11, 2017, 9:00 AM EST

In clinics around the world, a lack of integration between Patient QA and Machine QA can make it easier for errors to go undetected. With the development of SunCHECK, Sun Nuclear automates and integrates these critical functions for enhanced workflows and Patient Safety. This interactive presentation provides a brief overview of the new SunCHECK radiotherapy quality management platform and a software demonstration of released modules -- including DoseCHECK for independent secondary 3D dose calculations, PerFRACTION for 3D pre-treatment QA and in-vivo monitoring, and SNC Machine for TG-142 and VMAT QA. Includes an overview of PlanIQ for the continuous improvement of treatment plan quality.
