Gilly Belgian clinic enhances confidence with faster, easier end-to-end patient QA

Dec 23, 2021 – Elekta’s Online Magazine – Belgian clinic enhances confidence with faster, easier end-to-end patient QA

Medical physicist Michaël Del Re, MPE, Ph.D., at Grand Hôpital de Charleroi Gilly shares his experiences about complete patient Quality Assurance (QA) suite of secondary check (MU2net), pre-treatment check (EPIbeam) and in-vivo check (EPIgray).

During this recent interview, he emphasized that Elekta Patient QA solutions not only enhance confidence in treatments at the radiation therapy department of Grand Hôpital de Charleroi Gilly, but they also save time and improve the quality of life for their physicists: “MU2net provides a valuable double check of monitor units. It’s fast, automatic and will detect big errors in a plan… EPIbeam saves us a lot of time and is really fast, with only three clicks to obtain the result … 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.

He concluded: “The real benefit is the freeing up of physicist time. We can check treatment quality faster than before thanks to these three solutions.
