QA & Dosimetry Symposium Speaker Spotlight: Zoubir Ouhib, M.S.

Zoubir Ouhib, M.S.
I started practicing medical physics in 1982. The field of radiation therapy has seen significant changes and for the most part in an encouraging direction.
We have seen tremendous improvement at all levels including dose
calculation algorithms used in Treatment planning systems. The safe
treatment delivery of the intended dose relies in part of the accuracy
of the dose calculation used in the TPS.
In my presentation, I will cover the aspects of this Medical Physics
Practice Guideline (MPPG) related to TPS commissioning and QA for both
photons and electrons which has a direct impact on outcome. Items such
as data acquisition, beam modeling, and verification will be discussed.
In addition, validation tests, guidance on tolerances, and checklists
for this process will be discussed.
My hope is the audience will find the information valuable and will
give their thoughts and feedback during the Q&A panel discussion.
This way we can tease out some good questions we may not have considered
when putting together this document.
