For Medical Physics departments, Patient Quality Assurance (QA) begins with treatment planning, and continues through pre-treatment delivery and in-vivo monitoring. Likewise, the Medical Physics department is also responsible for Machine QA, including daily, monthly and annual QA testing, as well as imaging, VMAT and MLC QA. Put together, all these steps ensure treatments are being delivered safely and as intended to the patient. Given the comprehensive QA workflow just described, automation and integration are key for effective QA.
