Patient QA: prioritizing accuracy, efficiency and throughput in the SRS/SBRT workflow

Developed specifically for verification of stereotactic treatment plans, IBA Dosimetry’s latest innovation in patient quality assurance (QA) combines film-class measurement resolution with the workflow efficiency of a digital detector array.
The myQA SRS detector will eliminate patient QA bottlenecks associated with high-precision stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) treatments, allowing medical physicists to compare dose distributions – measured versus calculated – in minutes rather than hours and significantly enhancing patient throughput in the process.

 

When Accuracy matters, Resolution matters

This detector is optimized for your SRS/SBRT Patient QA and features a novel 0.4 mm film-class resolution CMOS technology array with 105,000 measurement points. The solution includes a dedicated phantom to support your efficient QA for different stereotactic delivery methods.
Notwithstanding the growing clinical adoption of stereotactic treatment systems, the extreme physics of SRS/SBRT – focusing high-dose radiation very precisely on a small lesion and having it fall off as quickly as possible – represents a non-trivial dosimetric and QA challenge for the medical physics team. Put simply: it’s not easy to confirm targeting accuracy and dose-distribution accuracy when the stereotactic treatment volume can be as small as a few millimetres in diameter – and doubly so when the existing QA options for SRS/SBRT are unsatisfactory, claims Sandra Kos, product manager for patient QA solutions at IBA Dosimetry.
“While film provides excellent precision in terms of dose resolution,” she explains, “it is cumbersome to use, time-consuming and temperamental, owing to the uncertainties in handling, calibration and development. On the other hand, 2D diode arrays and ion-chamber arrays are able to generate results rapidly, but lack the necessary spatial resolution and error-detection sensitivity for SRS/SBRT QA.” With myQA SRS, Kos argues, that accuracy versus efficiency trade-off no longer applies. “We have created a unique SRS/SBRT QA solution that delivers film-class resolution along with the proven workflow efficiency of a digital detector.”

Radiation Monitoring Systems

Radiation dosimetry in the fields of health physics and radiation protection is the measurement, calculation and assessment of the ionizing radiation dose absorbed by an object, usually the human body. This applies both internally, due to ingested or inhaled radioactive substances, or externally due to irradiation by sources of radiation.
We provide a diverse range of product solutions:

  • Personal Dosimeters
  • Survey Meters
  • Contamination Monitors
  • Hand Probes
  • Isotope Identifiers (Spectroscopy)
  • Area Monitors
  • Air Monitors
  • Portal Monitors
