DOSIsoft ThinkQA: Independent, Vendor neutral, Patient Quality Assurance solution for Radiation Therapy
ThinkQA is a global, modular web platform for radiotherapy quality assurance and error detection. It aims to guarantee the treatment quality and the patient safety while processing external beam radiation therapy. Easily integrated into a multivendor environment through DICOM standards and automated workflows, the software suite includes currently 3 modules:
– MU2net for Secondary MU calculation
– EPIbeam for EPID-based pretreatment beam verification
– EPIgray® for EPID-based in vivo dosimetry
Based on the use of Electronic Portal Imaging Device (EPID), EPIbeam and EPIgray® provide fast, accurate, automated pretreatment and in vivo verifications for all treatment techniques.
Elekta Vendor Interoperability Program
Elekta offers a Vendor Interoperability Program (VIP) which provides a framework for establishing and maintaining the interoperability of certain Vendor products with Elekta products and for improving the utilization of and compliance with Elekta standard interface methodologies and configuration recommendations.
DOSIsoft is now a member of Elekta’s Third Party Vendor Interoperability Program and based on DOSIsoft’s tests in accordance with the Vendor Interoperability Program DOSIsoft’s ThinkQA (including EPIbeam and EPIgray®) is interoperable with Elekta’s iViewGT™ QA Interface.
This interoperability with Elekta iViewGT™ 3.4.1 has been achieved and verified for EPIgray version 2.0.6 and EPIbeam version 1.0.2.
“Radiotherapy treatment techniques are becoming more and more sophisticated. Within this context, Quality Assurance not only becomes more critical for physicians and clinicians, but it has also to be performed within secure and automated workflows between all systems. This agreement and the successful results are a demonstration that DOSIsoft is committed to interoperate with all major vendors. We are delighted to be part of Elekta’s VIP program.” comments Marc Uszynski, CEO of DOSIsoft.
