Integrated Quality Assurance in Radiation Oncology.

Presented by

James P Nunn, MS, CHP, DABR Senior Medical Physicist Radiation Safety Officer LewisGale Hospital Pulaski

About this talk

Approved for one credit for CAMPEP, MDCB, ASRT As radiation-oncology clinics transition from paper to paperless environments, more documentation is being stored in computer databases. Medical-physics documentation was traditionally stored in large binders on a bookshelf and disparate Excel files on a PC hard drive. Historically this was the only option for storing the large volume of data required for regulatory compliance. In the last 5 years many vendors of radiation-oncology quality-assurance (QA) equipment have stepped up to fill this gap. Additionally, QA software is now available that combines the interfacing of hardware with QA systems. In this lecture I will cover some of the software packages available from vendors and will share the LewisGale experience in implementing one software package for integrated QA. I will conclude the lecture with some of my personal thoughts regarding suggestions for QA software vendors for the future.
