TG-142 imaging and machine QA procedures in a single, intuitive platform. PIPSpro provides a comprehensive, quantitative analysis of your imager and linac, easing the implementation of TG-142.
The latest version of PIPSpro includes a new MLC leaf speed module that allows the user to calculate quantitative leaf speed loss, as required by TG-142.
Specialized suite of phantoms allows for EPID-based QA in TG-142 recommended procedures, including:
Save up to $2500/year in film by upgrading to EPID-based QA for TG-142 tests.
Over 100 publications validate the performance of PIPSpro and its specialized phantoms with a variety of imagers.

"PIPSpro's intuitive interface and simplified QA phantoms facilitate meaningful data collection with minimal machine time."
"PIPSpro software and phantoms are valuable tools for streamlining over 30 of the TG-142 tests, automating data analysis, and providing documentation of the test results. By providing quantifiable and repeatable results, PIPSpro makes it easier for our center to become compliant with TG-142."
The suite of phantoms analyzed by PIPSpro form an accurate foundation for exceptional EPID-based QA. The factory-calibrated QC-3, QCkV-1, MLC and MIMI phantoms are ideal tools to begin TG-142 compliant testing for a variety of applications, including:
Once images are imported into PIPSpro, the software can perform comprehensive analysis on each phantom; providing quantitative, TG-142 quality assurance for over 30 procedures. All results have easy-to-read “stoplight” indicators, with customizable warning and rejection levels.View Details »
PIPSpro can store data on a central network for quick documentation and access for TG-142 test results and trending reports. QA results are shown in easy-to-read reports, which can be exported to PDF and ASCII files without additional software tools.View Details »
PIPSpro software analyzes the QC3, QC-kV, FC-2, MLC and Stereotactic phantoms. The calibrated QC-3 and QCkV-1 phantoms allow you to compare your results to similar machines worldwide. PIPSpro is also compatible with Catphan phantoms and the LEEDS test tool (TOR18) included with Linacs.
The LEEDS test tool was not designed for automated image analysis, thus only the lower frequency bar patterns are analyzed by PIPSpro. User-selectable trend points on the RMTF curve should be set at f90 and f80 for the LEEDS phantom.
Yes. However, one of the key attributes of PIPSpro is the ability to compare your results with those of other users. The factory-calibrated phantoms (tested lp/mm, results included) are explicitly designed to partner with PIPSpro: producing unmatched accuracy for a precise comparison of QA data.
