In the last 30 years, countless new radiation therapy modalities and treatment techniques have been embraced. Independent QA tools have kept pace, but have arrived as separate packages – designed for specific tasks, with unique software, databases and workflows to learn.
With demands for increased patient throughput, improved quality of care and reduced operational costs, every minute counts. And, with patient safety on the line, shortcuts are not an option.
Globally, nearly 119 million treatment fractions were treated in 2012. By 2035, that number is expected to jump to at least 204 million per year.

Integrated QA provides the workflow efficiency and time savings needed to get the job done. Independent QA provides the rigor needed to be confident issues are caught.
It’s what the field needs now, and it’s ready for you.
With SunCHECK, you have a fully independent, integrated workflow.
Get an overall view of Patient and Machine QA, with quick access to results, reviews, to-do’s and approvals. Verify QA has been completed successfully, and on-time.

With SunCHECK Patient, all phases of Patient QA integrate into a flexible, automated and seamless workflow.
“Because this system is fully automated so that no physicist time is required for data acquisition and evaluation, daily patient treatment QA is feasible.”

Verify setup, first fraction, and intra-fraction motion (when in EPID mode) against the treatment plan. Patient position and anatomy are factored into the analysis to enable true dosimetric In-Vivo Monitoring.
Pre-set, yet customizable dose tolerances for each phase of Patient QA allow you to obtain meaningful QA results quickly and easily. See the impact to different criteria sets instantly.
With SunCHECK Machine, you drive efficiency and critical consistency across locations, machines and staff. In turn, you are able to satisfy requirements of TG-142, TG-51 and your internal requirements.
Monthly constancy and beam quality checks take only 15 minutes for 5 beams with SunCHECK Machine vs. 60 minutes without.
