I’ve been an IMSure user since 2008 and find the software very convenient and easy to use. The flexibility of the DICOM import assures quick, easy and consistent QA times.
There are 3 features that set IMSure QA apart from other secondary calculation software solutions:
The 3-source model was developed at Stanford University as an improved method for performing secondary dose calculations of complex IMRT cases. The model can accurately calculate the contribution to dose from the head scatter no matter the field size, shape or the point of calculation in the field. It does this by modeling three different sources of scatter that contribute to the Sc value: the scatter from the main photon source, the scatter created by the flattening filter, and the scatter created by the main collimators.
Yes. There are several papers that describe in detail the 3-source model calculations that are used in IMSure QA. They can be found by clicking on the Publications tab.
Yes. IMSure QA can calculate either a phantom plan or a true patient plan. For patient plans there are fields for the input of both projected source to surface distances to account for patient contours and for effective depth to account for heterogeneities.
