Online Presentation: A new high-resolution digital SRS and SBRT QA detector array

4PM, 14th October 2021

A new high-resolution digital SRS and SBRT QA detector array: Performance characterisation and clinical advantages

This presentation has been submitted for approval by CAMPEP for 1 MPCEC hour and has been accredited by EBAMP as CPD event for Medical Physicists at EQF Level 7 and awarded 12 CPD credit points.

Learn about the physics characteristics and clinical performance of the new, recently released myQA SRS solution. The detector is optimised for your SRS and SBRT Patient QA and features a novel 0.4 mm film-class resolution CMOS technology array with 105,000 measurement points. In this online presentation, guest speakers Dr. Sally Fletcher and Dr. Chris Stepanek from University Hospitals Bristol & Weston (UHBW) NHS Foundation Trust, UK, will present their findings from extensive testing of the myQA SRS at UHBW. The presentation will conclude with expert answers to your live questions.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn about the physics characteristics of myQA SRS as evaluated by a clinical user.
  • Discover key performance specifications of the new myQA SRS.
  • Understand the QA workflow from setup and calibration to software validation functionality.
  • Observe the verification process and results for single- and multiple-target SBRT cases.
  • Understand how myQA SRS can be used during Linac validation for your SRS treatments.
  • Learn about limitations and challenges of stereotactic Patient QA using film-based or conventional SRS detector arrays.

Webinar: Commissioning and independent validation of Ethos™/Halcyon™ machines: Best practice

4PM, 8th June,
Webinar

Join the audience for a live webinar at 4 p.m. BST/11 a.m. EDT on 8 June 2021 exploring the best practice guidance for the independent commissioning validation and annual QA for Ethos™ and Halcyon™ machines.

In this webinar, experience and best practice guidance for the independent commissioning validation and annual QA for Ethos™ and Halcyon™ machines is presented. The focus is on efficiency and accuracy in this process.

During this presentation, you will learn about how to independently commission and validate the Varian® Ethos™ and Halcyon™ radiation therapy treatment machines based on real hands-on experience from the field.

The presenter, Mark DeWeese, is an experienced medical physicist who has been running a medical physics service company for more than 25 years. He has commissioned several of these machines over the years and gained valuable insight to enable a precise, error-free and efficient workflow.
