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.
