SunCHECKTM - 3.0 NEW!

You are here:

Version 3.0 released!

SunCHECK is integrated, independent Patient and Machine QA. Integrated QA provides standardization and workflow efficiency. Independent QA removes bias, assuring more treatment and machine issues will be caught.

Radiation therapy is complex. SunCHECK simplifies it — with a single QA interface and database, a centralized view of Quality Management, and greater opportunity to improve Patient Safety.

One Solution for Radiation Therapy QA

Manage all Patient and Machine QA in the same place to save time and reduce the likelihood of errors going undetected.

Speed and Efficiency through Automation

Cut time consumed by manual tasks. Eliminate the need for multiple applications. Gain bandwidth for data analysis, clinical decisions and continuous improvement.

Access from Anywhere

Untether your team with secure, browser-based visibility to the insights they need to see, wherever they are.

Leverage EPID for Risk Management

Verify and track dose throughout the treatment course to catch the most common types of errors — patient setup errors, anatomy changes, and machine errors.

Seamless Clinical Integration

SunCHECK supports virtually every combination of OIS, TPS, linac and clinical implementation. Count on custom installation, with a quick start-up guaranteed.

PlanCHECKTM Module

The new, first phase in the SunCHECK Patient workflow, PlanCHECK automates the time-consuming task of treatment plan checks.

SunCHECK Invivo | Dosimetry Complete Automation

Complete Automation

Patients’ plan files are automatically loaded into the Treatment Planning System and plan checks are performed – significantly streamlining this intensive process.

SunCHECK Invivo | Dosimetry Dosimetric Checks

Dosimetric Checks

Automatic performance assessment of a treatment plan versus intent, verifying a variety of comprehensive, structure-based checks

SunCHECK Invivo | Dosimetry Physics Checks

Physics Checks

Validate treatment plans against department requirements, and easily identify deviations, with user-defined pass/fail results.

ArcCHECK® Integration

Together, ArcCHECK and SunCHECK Patient (PerFRACTIONTM) provide unmatched flexibility for pre-treatment QA, improved root cause analysis, and efficient audit QA.

SunCHECK Invivo | Dosimetry Array-based and Phantomless Flexibility

Array-based and Phantomless Flexibility

Combine the world’s most selected independent 4D measurement array with the SunCHECK Platform for flexible phantomless and array-based pre-treatment QA.

SunCHECK Invivo | Dosimetry Simplified Workflow

Simplified Workflow

Easily transition between ArcCHECK Patient QA records and SunCHECK Patient QA record, all in one Platform, saving ~30 minutes per patient otherwise spent searching for data.

SunCHECK Invivo | Dosimetry Separate Error Sources

Separate Error Sources

More easily identify sources of error. DoseCHECKTM software identifies algorithm errors. ArcCHECK identifies delivery errors.

Apply the Platform

SunCHECK is designed from the ground up to support the real world of radiation therapy – where every combination of OIS, TPS, linac and clinical implementation is unique.

SunCHECK’s purpose is Patient Safety.

Powerful Patient-Specific QA
ArcCHECK is recommended by AAPM Task Group 218 for 3D measurement requirements. It measures and correlates gantry angle, leaf-end position, absolute dose and time to identify any potential source of error throughout the patient volume.

Clinically Relevant Dose & DVH QA
Identify TPS and beam delivery errors. With a single click, compare measured dose points to planned dose points. Review individual control points and user-defined full or sub-arc sections for an in-depth overview of pass, low, and high dose results.

MLC Pattern Machine QA
Further leverage your ArcCHECK for Machine QA tests by evaluating discrepancies between the planned and delivered MLC pattern and identifying leaves that may require service.

The Gold Standard

The Gold Standard

ArcCHECK provides true data on plan delivery and insights into potential errors. It owes its widespread adoption to:

  • A helical detector grid with 1,386 SunPoint® Diode Detectors for increased Beam’s Eye View (BEV) data density
  • Angular corrections accurate to ±0.5° using the Virtual InclinometerTM
  • Consistent BEV for all gantry angles measuring entrance and exit dose at multiple depths, and indicating potential delivery and TPS modeling errors for high or low dose levels
  • Real-time electrometer that measures every pulse, as well as composite and sub-arcs

Flexible Interior Dose Measurements for More Stringent QA

  • Tissue equivalent inserts support heterogeneity tests:
    • Inserts include: Brain, Breast, Bone, Liver, Lung, Muscle, Adipose, Titanium and Water/Air
  • MultiPlugTM accepts ion chambers, stereotactic detectors and film for interior point measurement in any of 25 unique locations
  • CavityPlugTM insert offers simplified isocenter dose measurement, without the film and tissue-equivalent insert features of MultiPlug
Flexible Interior Dose Measurements for More Stringent QA
