AAPM TG 142 PDF

Electronic mail: UDE. These prescriptive guidelines have traditionally focused on monitoring all aspects of the functional performance of radiotherapy RT equipment by comparing parameters against tolerances set at strict but achievable values. Many errors that occur in radiation oncology are not due to failures in devices and software; rather they are failures in workflow and process. A systematic understanding of the likelihood and clinical impact of possible failures throughout a course of radiotherapy is needed to direct limit QM resources efficiently to produce maximum safety and quality of patient care.

Brarr Tolerance is summation of total for each width or length d. MV Localization 0o of BB; collimator fg 0 and 90o. On hearing of such a large adjustment of all energies and modalities, Physicist B investigated further, and discovered the setup discrepancy.

CT Scan Parameter Form. At the same time, it presents new challenges for its efficient and effective implementation. Baseline means that the axpm data are consistent with or better than ATP data. Measurement of BB location in kV radiographic coordinates u,v vs. Adjustment of BB to treatment isocenter. The tabulated items of this report have been considerably expanded as compared with the original TG report and the recommended tolerances accommodate differences in the intended use of the machine functionality non-IMRT, IMRT, and stereotactic delivery.

Resources for testing the imaging capabilities of modern linacs may be accessed here. Artifacts in CT Imaging Crescent Artifact in CBCT Scans An apparent shift of the bow tie profile from projection to projection deriving most likely from minor mechanical instabilities, such as a tilt of the source or a shift of the focal spot W Giles et al: The imaging devices include x-ray imaging, photon xapm imaging, and cone-beam CT.

The following are questions that will be answered by University of. The TG report was designed to account for the types of treatments delivered with the particular machine.

Isocenter accuracy, Conebeam CT dose, safety, imaging dose e. The information provided in this website is offered for the benefit of its members and the general public, however, AAPM does not independently verify or substantiate the information provided on other websites that may be linked to this site. The longest dimension of the detector is aligned along with H-F laser or cross-hair. Positioning and repositioning, noise, and CTDI, software accuracy c. The report also gives recommendations as to action levels for the physicists to implement particular actions, whether they are inspection, scheduled action, or immediate and corrective action.

Expertise must be developed and must be re-established from time to time. Geometric accuracy, pixel number consistency, contrast, imaging dose d. Policy number Policy name Policy date Sunset date Policy text.

The report also gives specific recommendations regarding setup of a QA program by the physicist in regards to building a QA team, establishing procedures, training of personnel, documentation, and end-to-end system checks.

Repeat MV localization of BB for gantry angles of 90o, o, and o. Summary TG provides an effective guidelines for quality assurance of medical linear accelerators. Lateral, longitudinal, and rotational f. The TG accomplished the update to TG, specifying new test and tolerances, and has added recommendations for not only the new ancillary delivery technologies but also for imaging devices that are part of the linear accelerator. Compensator based IMRT solid compensators require a quantitative value for tray position wedge or blocking tray slot set at a maximum deviation of 1.

Or at a minimum when devices are to be used during treatment day. The report also gives recommendations as action levels for the physicists to implement particular actions, whether they are inspection, scheduled action, or immediate and corrective action.

Quality assurance of medical accelerators Category: An annual QA report be generated Implementation of TG requires a team efforts from different expertise to support all QA activities and develop necessary policies and procedures. Image alignment Image aapmm Couch shift 6-D rotations …. Scaling measured at SSD typically used for imaging. Dose monitoring as a function of dose rate b. There are specific tables according to daily, monthly, and annual reviews, along with unique tables for wedge systems, MLC, and imaging checks.
