Oncology Data Systems develops MUCheck a monitor unit/dose verification software for use in radiation therapy clinics.

Designed to validate dose and monitor unit calculations performed by primary radiation treatment planning software, MUCheck is a Windows-based, IBM compatible program that operates independently of any treatment planning system. MUCheck’s list of features enables medical professionals in the therapy department to perform calculations reportedly quickly and with ease of use.

MUCheck features include: DICOM Import; performs calculations for both photon and electron beams; provides for all types of correction factors to include trays, table attenuation, physical wedges, enhanced dynamic wedges (measured or Varian Golden STT), off-axis corrections, cone inserts/cutouts; supports isocentric (SAD) and TSD (SSD) calculations; normalization to isodose line; and more.
