Standard Imaging announces a new reference site in England: Nottingham University Hospitals Trust.

This center signed a 10-year QA Pilot contract for all of their 11 units including Elekta linacs, an Elekta MicroSelectron Brachytherapy unit, an Xstrahl 100 Superficial unit, Toshiba CT units, and an Ariane Papillon Contact unit. QA Pilot is a cloud-based, centralized software solution that makes managing QA easier and optimizes workflow for faster organization of data.

“For us, the big driver to getting a QA system was the jump from paper records to digital, so we can record our QA, but also use trending and reports to try to forecast machine downtime,” said Jonathan Littler, Principle Dosimetry Physicist at Nottingham University Hospitals Trust. “It also means we can demonstrate our QA compliance under the new IRMER regulations, without trawling through log books. Having the system entirely cloud-based means no installing and maintaining software, dealing with licenses, etc. It’s been an easy transition so far.”

In addition to being a QA Pilot user, they also use Standard Imaging’s IMSure software and QA BeamChecker Plus.

Nottingham University Hospitals Trust has a national and international reputation for their specialist services including stroke, renal, neurosciences, cancer services, and trauma. They provide their services to more than 2.5 million residents of Nottingham and surrounding communities and are at the forefront of many research programs.

“We’re excited for Nottingham University Hospitals Trust to add the use of QA Pilot into their facility to use in tandem with a suite of our other integrated solutions,” said Matthew Payne, Sales and Marketing Director at Standard Imaging.
