On January 23-24, 2020, Sun Nuclear will co-host a SunCHECK™user meeting for new and prospective SunCHECK users. The event will be held at AZ Sint Augustines Hospital, part of Iridium Kankernetwerk, a SunCHECK reference site in Belgium. Iridium Kankernetwerk is part of a worldwide user group of leading facilities researching efficiency gains and patient outcome optimization through use of SunCHECK for integrated and automated Radiation Therapy Quality Assurance.
Over the course of two days, Dirk Verellen, Ph.D., Director of Medical Physics and Radiotherapy at GZA hospital group, will highlight his department’s experience implementing SunCHECK, and best practices learned since deploying SunCHECK for clinical use.
Users will learn about:
- Centralizing data and management among sites
- Automating workflows for Patient QA and Machine QA
- Improving efficiency to make more time for high-value tasks
- Optimizing operations through risk management and downtime prevention
- Ensuring compliance with accreditation bodies and internal requirements
- Increasing standardization across all phases and machines, and between sites and staff
Prospective users will also learn about SunDEPLOYS™, our SunCHECK implementation support program.
