It’s about time.

Greater efficiency in quality assurance has been a long time coming.

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.

Prioritize Your Patients

Trade time spent moving, saving and searching for files for greater focus on improving treatment quality.

With SunCHECK Patient, all phases of Patient QA integrate into a flexible, automated and seamless workflow.

  • Secondary Checks
    Perform 3D secondary dose calculation for the systems your clinic uses.
  • Phantomless Pre-Treatment QA
    Complete your 2D/3D pre-treatment QA, with both EPID measurement and log file-based options.
  • In-Vivo Monitoring
    Verify and track dose throughout your patients’ courses of treatment.

“Because this system is fully automated so that no physicist time is required for data acquisition and evaluation, daily patient treatment QA is feasible.”

Zhuang AH, Olch AJ., J Appl Clin Med Phys (2018)

2.0 FEATURE IN FOCUS: TRANSIT DOSIMETRY

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.

2.0 FEATURE IN FOCUS: UNIVERSAL METRICS

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.

Get More from Your Machines

Improve standardization and ease compliance reporting for Daily, Monthly and Annual QA

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.

  • Daily, Monthly, Annual QA
    Ensure consistency among machines and clinics with shared tolerances. Apply ready-to-use, but customizable templates for efficient QA. No more spreadsheets!
  • Measurement Device Connectivity
    Automate beam measurement with direct device integration to Sun Nuclear’s Daily QA™ 3 and IC PROFILER™. Eliminate the need for additional software and transfer of data.
  • Imaging, MLC and VMAT QA
    Simply deliver test beams. With acquired image or log file data, SunCHECK Machine automatically processes the data and analyzes results.

Monthly constancy and beam quality checks take only 15 minutes for 5 beams with SunCHECK Machine vs. 60 minutes without.
