Why patient QA?

Safety is a priority in radiation therapy. Protecting patients against ionizing radiation to healthy tissue is essential. Every measurement must be as accurate as possible. Various patient QA processes can produce different results; therefore, it is imperative to independently verify calculations a second time. This is exactly what RadCalc does: independently verifies dosimetric calculations in an easy-to-use software platform.

How do you check calculations of the treatment planning system?

„Nearly 60 % of the reported errors involved a lack of an appropriate independent secondary check of the treatment plan or dose calculation.“

According to IAEA Technical Report 430

Safety

For your patients

In the medical field it is common to get a second opinion. Patients do not have the chance to check their own treatment planning calculation. To know that comprehensive QA has been performed, gives trust and confidence which in turn has a positive effect on the treatment.

For you

For the medical physicist, time is a limited resource. However, time savings cannot be achieved by fewer tests, but by efficient tools. Due to independent patient QA with secondary check software, more time is created for machine QA, which results in additional risk reduction.
