Automatically receive audible alerts, emails or text messages, when clinically-relevant events occur.
LinacView checks that machine performance is exactly as prescribed in your approved treatment plan.
Adaptivo estimates dose to targets and organs at risk, catches patient set up errors, and brings reliable new insights to your understanding of delivered dose.
Together LinacView and Adaptivo create a complete view of treatment delivery.
Plus, LinacView is inexpensive, will work with your current network, and requires no special computing hardware!
LinacView instantly and automatically checks machine performance as treatments occur. When clinically-relevant events occur, your staff is notified by a general, centrally-located audible alert and targeted emails or text messages to your physics staff. All results are automatically appended to your patient's treatment record for later analysis that may allow you to predict future machine maintenance needs.Find out more »
Just load your RT Plan and deliver your beams as you would with standard hardware-based pre-treatment QA solutions. Comprehensive treatment delivery analysis that exceeds what is possible with hardware-based solutions is done instantly and automatically, becoming a part of your patient's treatment record.
Modulation complexity scores help you compare competing plans and may give insight into plans whose delivery may be problematic.Find out more »

LinacView is a great tool to indicate systematic errors, especially when the MLC or jaw position did not align well for several patients. I was able to use this tool to communicate with field service engineers and make a correction for our Linac. I am pleased with the performance of LinacView.
We routinely rely on LinacView in our medical physics department to follow-up and record the correct application of each treatment with every patient. In addition to patient QA, we also depend on LinacView to verify machine QA. Evaluating the logfiles with this software ensures us that the linac is operating correctly and that the data transfer to the linac has functioned properly. LinacView provides substantial benefits in terms of patient care, as deviations from planned treatment can be rapidly detected by means of this valuable cross-check.
LinacView is a powerful and versatile tool for logfile analysis. We use the results produced by this software for various applications such as: daily checking of a reference VMAT arc performed on each of our LINACs (for example, to detect when either gantry chain adjustment or leaf motor replacement is required), to investigate a diminished performance in our pre-treatment patient QA, to monitor LINAC performance during each fraction delivered to every one of our patients, to compare, in terms of DVH, the planned treatment and the "delivered" treatment recalculated on our TPS with an RT-plan file exported from LinacView which contains all log file data. For the last use mentioned, we greatly appreciate carrying out these comparisons on our TPS rather than on another TPS. Moreover, I believe that LinacView is a tool which fosters cooperation between manufacturers, medical physics and biomedical engineering departments.
LinacView can detect errors for items that are in a linac logfile (leaf, jaw, gantry positions, etc.).
Summary RT Plans can be imported back into your treatment planning system to confirm that treatments with machine errors (e.g., missing beams) continue to achieve treatment goals. Also, since the RT Plan encapsulates machine behavior expressed in the logfiles during treatment, it can be evidence of treatment completion and quality.
Yes. Typical use, when there are no delivery issues, LinacView does not affect clinical workflow. Therapists watch deliveries for errors at the console. Physicists are notified by email only when errors that might affect patient outcomes occur.
