Autonomous Brachytherapy QA

The OriQA Autonomous HDR Brachytherapy Phantom streamlines the workflow for acquiring dwell position, dwell time and relative source activity measurements for HDR Brachytherapy QA. It allows for automated, rapid acquisition of QA data while minimizing sources of error associated with traditional data acquisition techniques. Drastically exceeding the recommended clinical requirements, the system provides the utmost confidence in performing even the most complex of brachytherapy treatments. Comprehensive reports are generated automatically and all data is digitized for automated upload to QA database systems.


Cloud-Based QA Database

Klio is Luca Medical Systems’ answer to centralized, cloud-based medical physics QA data management. Though the concept of a cloud-based database of QA data is nothing new, Klio’s underlying architecture standardizes the data to allow inter-machine and cross-institutional parameter analysis. Klio is also fully customizable to suit you clinic’s needs, allowing custom forms and algorithms to be employed for data analysis.

Medical Physics machine QA should be straightforward, accurate, and as automated as possible, allowing physicists to focus more on patient duties.

Automated Accurate Dwell Acquisition

Rapid radioluminescent image acquisition allows for pinpoint positional and temporal measurement accuracy of HDR brachytherapy seeds.

Relative Radioactivity Tracking

Relative source activity is tracked with every acquisition to monitor radioactive decay, verify source integrity and ensure accurate treatment planning.

Automatically Generated Digital Reports

Data is processed in near real time and digital QA reports are automatically generated immediately following data acquisition. These reports are fully customizable to suit your institution and can be signed digitally, simplifying the approval process.

Cloud-based Data Management

Upload your data and reports directly to Klio, Luca Medical Systems’ cloud-based QA data management service. View data longitudinally to observe measurement trends and catch issues before they happen.

Automated Workflow

Dwell position, time, and source activity all acquired in a single click of a button.
