PIPSpro Version 5.2 Provides First True Leaf Speed Test

Posted: Apr 1st, 2015

Standard Imaging is proud to announce the release of PIPSpro v5.2. This release extends the functionality of PIPSpro with a new MLC leaf speed module that allows the user to calculate quantitative leaf speed loss, as required by TG-142.

“PIPSpro is the first commercial machine QA software to determine leaf speed loss. Systems that report only maximum and mean leaf speed cannot be used to calculate leaf speed loss, as required by TG-142,” notes Standard Imaging medical physicist Shannon Holmes, Ph.D.

New features include:

• MLC leaf speed analysis using DynaLog files
• Approval capability for printed reports

With over 20 years of clinical use and performance backed by over 100 publications, PIPSpro and its specialized phantoms have provided medical physicists in more than 700 clinics with an accurate platform for routine QA. PIPSpro v5.2 builds upon this clinical experience, adding essential features and improving performance to create an intuitive tool invaluable to any radiation treatment facility.
