The Medizinische Versorgungszentrum Prof. Dr. Uhlenbrock und Partner (Prof. Dr. Uhlenbrock and Partner Medical Center)
is a radiology, radiation therapy and nuclear medicine network with 14 clinical locations, six of which offer radiation therapy services.
Five of these clinical locations are currently being upgraded with state-of-the-art Elekta linear accelerators to provide the best possible cancer care to their patients. Each of these new Elekta linear accelerators will be equipped with IQM.
The Head of Medical Physics Christian Heddier states
“Initially, we will utilize IQM for verifying our complex IMRT and VMAT plans, while in a next step we plan to expand IQM’s use to online verification during the patient treatment, as well as for independent machine QA.”
While the IQM systems at the locations in Dortmund-Hoerde and in Lippstadt are currently being installed, the location in Luenen has already started using IQM clinically.
Katharina Hoener, Medical Physicist at the clinical location in Luenen, reported
“IQM works really well. We use it to verify every complex clinical plan.”
Christian Heddier added
“We are really impressed by the simple setup and the automated workflow of the IQM system, which doesn’t require any user interaction. The system offers great potential to automate our machine QA for better and faster results.”
