Frequently Asked Questions

What makes IMSure QA different from other secondary calculation software?

There are 3 features that set IMSure QA apart from other secondary calculation software solutions:

  1. The IMSure QA 3-source model for IMRT calculations is more accurate than the modified Clarkson method used by all of the other solutions.
  2. The IMSure QA user interface is designed so all of the information you need to make a decision about your plan is presented on a single screen.  There is no need to click on different tabs or arrow keys to see information about each beam or the composite.
  3. Only IMSure QA imports fluence maps from your treatment planning system and then compares them to an independently calculated map for a comprehensive evaluation of the entire patient plan using 5 different comparisons.
What is the 3-source model?

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.

Are there any papers written about IMSure QA Software?

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.

Can I check a patient plan instead of a phantom plan?

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.
