Varian to Highlight Software that Augments Quality Assurance Processes in Radiation Oncology at the 2014 American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) Meeting
Date:7/16/2014

AUSTIN, Texas, July 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR) will showcase tools designed to augment essential quality assurance processes in radiation oncology at the 2014 annual meeting of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM).  During the meeting, taking place here from July 20-24, Varian will also highlight tools for knowledge sharing, as well as recent enhancements to the TrueBeam™ system for image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery.

Machine performance check (MPC), a new service tool for use with Varian's TrueBeam system, is among the tools that will be showcased.  A fully automated test sequence that acquires 40 images and completes 18 tests in about five minutes, MPC helps medical physicists determine that the TrueBeam system is operating within specified parameters prior to treatment. 

"The TrueBeam system incorporates several tightly integrated subsystems,  including the gantry, which rotates around the patient; the multileaf collimator, which shapes the treatment beam; the treatment couch, which is used to position the patient for treatment; and two imagers for fine-tuning tumor targeting and verifying the dose delivered," said Todd Holmes, product manager.  "MPC enables a user to quickly establish that each of these components is performing accurately, so that clinicians can deliver highly precise treatments like stereotactic radiosurgery with confidence.  It also conducts a constancy check of the treatment beam to verify that it is stable over time.  The test can be completed quickly, in a way that is easily integrated into daily clinical processes."

Varian will also showcase Qumulate™ QA, a cloud-based quality assurance (QA) data management and analysis tool.  A works-in-progress that is not yet av
