Quality Reports [EMR] Begins Validation Phase

Posted on

Quality Reports [EMR] software will begin official validation testing on February 4, 2013. This is the final phase of testing this new, exciting product.

Thankfully, we have some great validation partners who have been using the software regularly for clinical EMR, powerful & automated protocols, plan quality assessment, and research. I would like to personally thank Goshen Hospital (Goshen, IN), Moffitt Cancer Center (Tampa, FL), and especially the great folks at L’Hôpital Rosemont-Maissoneuve (Montreal, Quebec) who have been giving excellent feedback for so many months. Merci Beaucoup, mes amis.

And last but not least, I thank my partners in this endeavor – the talented CMD’s at Radiation Oncology Resources: Greg, Kyle, Adam, Steve, and Sharath. We’ve come a long way fellas, but it’s only the beginning.

** Update: February 23rd ** Quality Reports [EMR] onsite validation is complete! Design transfer tests will be run using the “customer portal” for product and documentation downloads during the week of February 25th. User documentation and a special video training series will also be finishing up soon, wrapping up version 1.0 and allowing the official commercial release by ~March 8th....

New Publication Explores 4D Dose QA

Posted on

Check out our new publication called “Motion as a perturbation: Measurement-guided dose estimates to moving patient voxels during modulated arc deliveries,” published in the about-to-be-hot-off-the-press issue of Medical Physics (February 2013). This work was another great collaboration with Dr. Vladimir Feygelman and his team at Moffitt Cancer Center (Tampa, FL).

** Update February 11th ** This publication was recently named one of the “Editor’s Picks” for volume 40(2) of Medical Physics. This means that you can download the full paper PDF for free from the Medical Physics website.

This was a real labor of love for all of us. A tough bit of work, lots of moving parts (pun intended), but well worth the effort. And now the real fun begins…simulating clinical SBRT plans delivered to moving targets by highly dynamic rotating VMAT fields....
