Sun Nuclear Presents Portfolio of Independent Radiotherapy QA Solutions at ASTRO 2019

Company will highlight new tools for workflow automation and emergent techniques

Sun Nuclear Presents Portfolio of Independent Radiotherapy QA Solutions at ASTRO 2019

The PlanCheck module now part of SunCheck, automates plan quality checks, validates treatment plans against requirements, and automatically assesses plan performance versus intent.

September 16, 2019 — At the 2019 American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Annual Meeting, running Sept. 15-18 in Chicago, Sun Nuclear Corp. will present novel advancements in radiation oncology quality management.

For the SunCheck Quality Management Platform, Sun Nuclear introduces PlanCheck. This new module within the SunCheck Patient workflow automates plan quality checks, validates treatment plans against requirements, and automatically assesses plan performance versus intent. At ASTRO 2019, Sun Nuclear will also highlight SunCheck's expanded direct device integration, plus support for Varian Halcyon System secondary dose calculations, pre-treatment quality assurance (QA) and in-vivo monitoring.

Sun Nuclear will also introduce new Precision Laser Systems for positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) simulation, magnetic resonance (MR) simulation, MR-guided radiotherapy (RT) and linear accelerator (linac)-based RT. Redesigned to better fit clinical workflows, CT SIM+ and MICRO+ laser systems offer high precision and accuracy at the patient, with what the company calls unmatched reliability, laser line definition and laser line length. Compatible with all major third-party systems, CT SIM+ software provides automation for enhanced patient focus.  

Beyond workflow automation support, Sun Nuclear enables adoption of emergent treatment techniques, including stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and MR-guided radiation therapy (MRgRT).

Enhancing the Sun Nuclear SRS QA portfolio is the introduction of the MultiMet-WL Cube. The device quantifies the margin of error for off-axis SRS targets, measuring error margins for single-isocenter multiple metastases treatments. Further supporting SRS programs are advancements with SRS MapCheck, including support for the Accuray CyberKnife System and vertex fields, including HyperArc. 

Sun Nuclear addresses the challenges of MRgRT with a suite of solutions, including ArcCheck-MR and IC Profiler-MR. Available soon and on display at ASTRO, Daily QA-MR will become the first commercially available daily QA system for MR-linacs.

 The numbers of cancer screening tests rebounded sharply in the last quarter of 2020, following a dramatic decline in the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic, at one large hospital system in the Northeastern United States. These findings were released in a study published in Cancer Cell. The research also found an increase in racial and socioeconomic disparities among users of some screening tests during the pandemic.
