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

ailable for sale, Qumulate is designed to allow medical physicists to maintain linear accelerator (linac) QA data through a simple and intuitive web interface.  Using this web-based tool, users will be able to create QA templates reflecting their own clinic-specific testing procedures, identify trends in a linac's historical test performance, and see how their own machine compares to the QA performance of other linacs.  All the data will be analyzed in the cloud. 

"Not only will Qumulate help alleviate the QA paperwork burden, it may also help standardize the QA process with the ultimate goal of delivering the highest quality of care to the patient," said Sukhveer Singh, vice president of Varian's Oncology Continuum Solutions group.  "We're excited to share this latest innovation designed to facilitate greater knowledge sharing among users."

Other knowledge-sharing tools to be exhibited include:

  • RapidPlan™ knowledge-based treatment planning software, which enables clinicians to leverage knowledge and data from earlier treatment plans to quickly develop high-quality personalized plans for patients. 
  • Velocity™ software for accessing and aggregating treatment and imaging data from diverse systems to show a comprehensive view of a patient's diagnostic history, regardless of where they were treated or what technology was used.  

"The ongoing development of these software products is part of an important initiative we launched last year, to focus on solutions that promote evidence-based care and help to enhance quality, consistency, and efficiency in clinical processes related to radiotherapy and radiosurgery," said Kolleen Kennedy, president of Varian's Oncology Systems business.  "We are pleased to share some of these tools, plus other refinements of our major cancer treatment
