Cardinal Health Inc. this week introduced IntelliCheck Daily Check Device, a portable, daily check device for therapy beam quality assurance (QA).
The tool creates protocols organized by type of test, machine and weekday, Cardinal said. It displays the results of data analysis, graphically or in tabular form. Nine ion chambers verify flatness, symmetry and dose constancy, while a specially-filtered ion chamber provides energy constancy information.
To reduce oncology QA workload, the device is outfitted with a bright color LCD touch screen and menu-driven user interface, internal and external flash memory for measurement storage and Ethernet cable or wireless interface.
