Elekta and ScandiDos sign distributor agreement
Elekta and ScandiDos AB have entered into a non-exclusive global agreement to distribute ScandiDos's Delta4PT quality assurance (QA) tool.

Uppsala, Sweden-based ScandiDos's Delta4PT can be used with Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy and Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy techniques to provide pre-treatment QA that ensures that the dose prescribed in treatment plans is delivered accurately and safely to patients.

Delta4PT enables clinicians to verify dose delivery in 3D, instantly analyze and approve plans, evaluate the clinical significance of deviations and identify the cause of deviations. The benefits are improved efficiency by increasing the volume of patients that can be treated as well as enhanced verification accuracy, enabling more qualified QA decisions, according to Stockholm-based Elekta, a developer of tools and treatment planning systems for radiation therapy and radiosurgery.
