Machine QA

QA CrossChecker™

Comprehensive Beam Verification and Analysis.

QA CrossChecker™ part of complete solution for: Monthly QA CyberKnife

QA CrossChecker™ Overview

Optimized Detector Positioning For Key Linac QA Routine

  • 453 air-vented pixel ionization chambers with optimized 5 mm spacing allows for accurate machine QA including dosimetric, mechanical, gating and MLC performance testing.
  • Parallel readout from independent electrometers allows for fast measurements.

Water Phantom Free

  • Compare results to water phantom baselines and achieve accuracy within 0.5%.
  • Perform accurate monthly machine QA without the hassle of a water phantom.

Pair With Software For Lightning Fast Reports

  • Automatically compare energy measurements with their corresponding reference values.
  • Test reports are created according to user-defined tolerances.
  • Reports include reference values, allowing you to easily identify changes in your machine.
