This paper reports on the commissioning of an Elekta cone-beam computed tomography (CT) system at one of the first U.S. sites to install a "regular," off-the-shelf Elekta Synergy (Elekta, Stockholm, Sweden) accelerator system. We present the quality assurance (QA) procedure as a guide for other users. The commissioning had six elements: (1) system safety, (2) geometric accuracy (agreement of megavoltage and kilovoltage beam isocenters), (3) image quality, (4) registration and correction… CONTINUE READING
