IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.), the global high-tech leader in the next generation of proton therapy solutions and radiation therapy (SBRT) quality assurance for the treatment of cancer, announces the firstclinical implementation of Dolphin Online Ready Patient QA and Monitoring solution in Turkey
With the use of Dolphin, the team at the Gaziosmanpasa Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey, implemented a new quality assurance standard for challenging radiosurgery and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) cases. These patient treatments are delivered with high doses typically in five or less treatment fractions precisely tailored to the tumor’s shape and location. To address the special high demands of SRS and SBRT cases the hospital’s team has clinically implemented Dolphin due to the system’s ability to verify treatment doses in 3D within the patient’s individual anatomy.
“We are now using Dolphin to perform patient QA for our advanced and challenging stereotactic cases and for our Head & Neck treatments” says Bora Tas, Asst. Prof. and Chief Medical Physicistat the Gaziosmanpasa Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey. He continues, “compared to our previous table based QA solution we can now measure and verify our patient QA in significantly less time”.
