Title (EN) A METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR REAL-TIME MECHANICAL AND DOSIMETRIC QUALITY ASSURANCE MEASUREMENTS IN RADIATION THERAPY
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL POUR MESURES D'ASSURANCE DE QUALITÉ MÉCANIQUE ET DOSIMÉTRIQUE EN TEMPS RÉEL EN RADIOTHÉRAPIE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and device for real-time mechanical and dosimetric quality assurance measurements in radiation therapy provides a unified measurement of mechanical motion and radiation components of the machine. The device includes an imaging surface for receiving multiple energy sources. The imaging surface has an imaging plane positioned on a same plane as an isocenter of a medical accelerator. A camera measures and records data related to the multiple energy sources. A mirror system can be used to direct the multiple energy sources to the camera for further processing. However, in some instances the mirror system may not be necessary. Accordingly, a single device can be used to unify the measurement of mechanical motion and radiation component of the machine. The device can also include computer control in order to automate the movement of the device and/or automation of the QA protocol.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif pour mesures d'assurance de qualité mécanique et dosimétrique en temps réel en radiothérapie qui fournissent une mesure unifiée de composantes de mouvement mécanique et de rayonnement de la machine. Le dispositif comprend une surface d'imagerie pour recevoir de multiples sources d'énergie. La surface d'imagerie comporte un plan d'imagerie positionné sur un même plan qu'un isocentre d'un accélérateur médical. Une caméra mesure et enregistre des données connexes aux multiples sources d'énergie. Un système miroir peut être utilisé pour diriger les multiples sources d'énergie vers la caméra pour un traitement supplémentaire. Cependant, dans certains cas, le système miroir peut ne pas être nécessaire. Par conséquent, un dispositif unique peut être utilisé pour unifier la mesure de composantes de mouvement mécanique et de rayonnement de la machine. Le dispositif peut également comprendre une commande par ordinateur afin d'automatiser le mouvement du dispositif et/ou d'automatiser du protocole de QA.
