Sun Nuclear's SunCHECK Platform enables comprehensive remote quality assurance (QA) for radiation therapy, during COVID-19 and beyond.

October 11, 2021 — To maintain safety in radiation therapy (RT), every machine performance and patient delivery measurement must be as accurate as possible. For the Medical Physics department, Patient Quality Assurance (QA) begins with treatment planning, and continues through pre-treatment delivery and in-vivo monitoring. Likewise, the Medical Physics department is also responsible for Machine QA, including daily, monthly and annual QA testing, as well as imaging, VMAT and MLC QA. Put together, all these steps ensure treatments are being delivered safely and as intended to the patient. Recently, we surveyed companies that offer QA software platforms to learn about the different offerings available. See the Radiation Therapy Quality Assurance Platforms Comparison Chart to understand how they stack up.
