Patient Specific QA and IGRT Requirements in Single Isocenter Treatments
Nzhde Agazaryan, PhD, Chief of Clinical Medical Physics at the University of California Los Angeles discusses patient specific quality assurance (QA) and image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) requirements for single isocenter treatment of multiple cranial targets with Brainlab Elements Multiple Brain Mets SRS software. He begins by outlining that there have been significant patient and provider benefits since implementing the software at his institution. He then uses three multiple brain metastases case scenarios to demonstrate in detail various patient specific QA methods.
