July 14, 2015 - IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.) announced that the first patient case in the United States has successfully been quality controlled using myQA Global QA Platform at the LewisGale Regional Center in Pulaski, Virginia.

The platform-based plan verification offers distinct advantages such as having the software installed on a database. In contrast to local installation, this means data can be accessed anywhere, anytime, connecting staff and treatment locations.

"With SQL server capability, myQA can be installed directly into a center's network and backup can be performed daily by IS. Data loss is one more thing I don't have to worry about," said James Nunn, senior medical physicist at LewisGale. "Through the Web interface, I am updated about all my QA [quality assurance] status in real time. Overall, myQA has been well-received by our therapists and physics team who use it for plan QA as well as morning QA. We use myQA for our end-of-day checks, CT [computed tomography] QA in the software, and we are expanding to other areas in the department."
