“… Performing pre-radiotherapy verification using the EPID in the treatment room without cumbersome setup procedures is the best solution to save time and overcome staffing limitations … By using EPIbeam for pre-treatment, patient-specific QA, we are able to save one hour from the minimum of 30 minutes required just for physical phantom setup…”

“… simply launches the EPIgray data acquisition, which occurs during treatment delivery without adding any time to the 15-minute treatment slot. EPIgray is more accurate than our old diode in vivo dosimetry technique and can be used for VMAT plans. It checks the entire workflow, including the patient, which is very important for us … and gives us more confidence in our plans.”

“EPID dosimetry is an efficient tool for routine patient IMRT/VMAT QA that can be performed in a far shorter timeframe than 3D detector-based measurements,” EPIbeam pre-treatment QA solution is extremely easy to use and demonstrated its sensitivity to detect known MLC errors in the order of 2 mm.”
Since we began using EPIbeam pretreatment quality assurance (QA) in March 2019, the Léon Bérard Center in Lyon, France, has achieved a 65% reduction in machine time dedicated to QA, allowing more patients to receive valuable SBRT treatments every week. One of the main advantages of EPIbeam is the ability to delegate pretreatment QA to the radiation therapists. It was quick and easy to implement, requiring only two hours to collect data for beam modeling.
“PLANET® Dose has been a pioneer in different types of treatment, including 90Y-SIRT liver and 177Lu therapies, the tool is largely used in our team and everyone can benefit: interventional radiologists, pharmacists, nuclear physicians and physicists. … CE marked, DOSIsoft was one of the first to offer personalized 3D dosimetry … For us, it’s now an indispensable clinical tool … and a real advance in ensuring optimal quality in the treatment of our cancer patients.”
