The AAPM has recently released new recommendations that dive deep into patient specific QA with TG 219 published in 2021 covering independent calculation-based dose/MU verification for IMRT which stems from TG 218 published in 2018 on Tolerance Limits and Methodologies for IMRT Measurement-Based Verification QA. In this webinar attendees will learn to understand the limitations for each of point, planar and volumetric secondary check processes, and algorithms (TG219) as well as the recommendations from TG218 with regard to IMRT QA and how pass/fail rates correspond to the delivery of the plans.

The presenters

Dr. Vimal Desai, PhD /Clinical Instructor/Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals was introduced to the field of medical physics through patient-specific QA projects utilizing log file analysis. This led to his expanded interest radiation dosimetry, quality assurance, and radiation measurements/simulations. Vimal’s doctoral thesis was focused on linear accelerators and investigated calibrating radiation detectors closer to clinical delivery conditions. This has led to various collaborators investigating the efficacy of plan complexity metrics and maintains interests and ongoing projects in various topics related to patient-specific QA. 

Carlos Bohorquez, M.S., D.A.B.R is the Product Manager for RadCalc at LifeLine Software, Inc., a part of the LAP Group. An experienced board-certified Clinical Physicist with a proven history of working in the clinic and medical device industry, Carlos’ passion for clinical quality assurance is demonstrated in the research and development of RadCalc into the future.
