Overview

VMAT Check is one of the newest additions to the MuCheck product suite. This powerful module is packed with many advanced features for second-checking your VMAT, RapidArc, SmartArc, or other arc therapy plans. In addition to an enhanced algorithm, the software includes the ability to read CT image files to automatically calculate the SSD, depth, and effective depth for each control point along the arc. Several tools are included, such as the ability to view the movement of the calculation point within the beams-eye view. VMAT Check can be purchased as a stand-alone dose calculator or as an add-on to your existing MuCheck second-check product suite.

Features

  • Improved algorithm, designed with rotational arc plans in mind
  • Use the CT image set to calculate SSD, depth, and effective depth all along the arc – increased accuracy; no manual input!
  • Visual representation of collimator, gantry, and table position for each control point
  • Calculate off-axis points as well as isocenter
  • Optional import of the DICOM RT Dose file allows you to compare dose at various points without going back to the treatment planning system.
  • View information for each control point, or for the entire beam
  • Easily export control point information to Excel for further analysis
  • Volume average tool for calculation points in high-gradient regions

VMAT Check’s built-in CT import screen allows the user to import CT images and structure files to automatically calculate the SSD, depth, and effective depth all along the arc.

The Segment Analyzer tool allows the user to see control point information at a glance. This can be exported to an Excel spreadsheet, if desired, for further analysis.

The Beams-Eye View tool shows the calculation point within the beams-eye view. This can be helpful because non-isocenter points move within the BEV during an arc treatment. The Beams-Eye-View tool easily shows whether the calculation point is receiving dose at any point during the treatment.
