The number of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) procedures is continuously growing worldwide and it is necessary to develop tools for patient specific quality assurance (QA) that avoid using machine time that could be employed in treating additional patients. One way of achieving this goal is to perform a multileaf collimator quality assurance periodically in the linear accelerator and check the treatment planning system (TPS) calculation by employing an independent calculation… CONTINUE READING
