TomoTherapy to Introduce Tomo Quality Assurance at AAPM 2008

July 25, 2008 - TomoTherapy Inc. said it will introduce TQA at the 50th Annual American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) Meeting in Houston, July 27-31, 2008.

TQA, or Tomo Quality Assurance, is reportedly the first integrated, machine-specific quality assurance (QA) solution to be offered by a radiation therapy vendor. The TQA application streamlines the collection—and simplifies the review—of data used to monitor radiation therapy equipment and procedures. All TQA data can be exported for third-party validation.
TQA has been developed by TomoTherapy in partnership with medical physicists experienced in the clinical use of the Hi·Art treatment system.

The TQA application leverages the Hi·Art treatment system’s platform integration. It works by gathering data from the on-board detector and other sub-systems that monitor the device continuously during delivery. The data is then presented in a customizable, calendar-based interface that is accessible from the Hi·Art system’s operator station. With this comprehensive data dashboard, any parameter’s status can be identified at a glance and comparatively assessed via automated reporting and trending features, said the company.
