In the last 30 years, countless new radiation therapy modalities and treatment techniques have been embraced. Independent QA tools have kept pace, but have arrived as separate packages – designed for specific tasks, with unique software, databases and workflows to learn.
With demands for increased patient throughput, improved quality of care and reduced operational costs, every minute counts. And, with Patient Safety on the line, shortcuts are not an option.
Globally, nearly 119 million treatment fractions were treated in 2012. By 2035, that number is expected to jump to at least 204 million per year.

Integrated QA provides standardization and workflow efficiency to get the job done. Independent QA provides unbiased assurance that treatment and machine issues are caught.
It’s what the field needs now, and it’s ready for you.
With SunCHECK, you have a fully independent, integrated workflow.
Get an overall view of Patient and Machine QA, with quick access to results, reviews, to-do’s and approvals. Verify QA has been completed successfully, and on-time.

With SunCHECK Patient, all phases of Patient QA integrate into a flexible, automated and seamless workflow.
“Because this system is fully automated so that no physicist time is required for data acquisition and evaluation, daily patient treatment QA is feasible.”
Zhuang AH, Olch AJ., J Appl Clin Med Phys (2018)
Validate the treatment plan against departmental requirements, and automatically assess performance versus intent. More than 60 rules-based Physics Checks and comprehensive structure-based Dosimetric Checks are included.
Verify setup, first fraction, and intra-fraction motion (when in EPID mode) against the plan. Patient position and anatomy are factored into the analysis for.
With SunCHECK Machine, you drive efficiency and critical consistency across locations, machines and staff. In turn, you are able to satisfy requirements of TG-142, TG-51, DIN and your internal requirements.
Monthly constancy and beam quality checks take only 15 minutes for 5 beams with SunCHECK Machine vs. 60 minutes without.
