Quality Assurance Programs for a Linear Accelerator

Nilsson, Carl Magnus LU (2009) 7th International Conference on Medical Physics In Medical Physics In The Baltic States: Proceedings Of The 7th International Conference On Medical Physics p.60-63
Abstract
Quality Assurance (QA) is a comprehensive method for evaluation of an accelerator's performance. It involves tools aiming at getting a correct absorbed dose to the patient and a good uptime. Daily, weekly, monthly and yearly checks of an accelerator are needed for a good surveillance of the accelerator. An acceptance test is done to check that the accelerator at delivery is within specified limits. The parameters are later checked within different timeframes to sec if the values keep within a specified limit, and if not then corrected. The QA and Quality Control (QC) of the accelerators at Malmo University Hospital are described.
