ScandiDos has signed an interoperability agreement with Elekta for the Delta4 Discover transmission detector.
We are now working on the validation specification and hope to have an approved system to be used during treatment on Elekta therapy machines in the near future. Since November 2017 The Delta4 Discover has been approved for use by Varian Medical Systems on TrueBeam® and Clinac® Systems and is now in clinical use during treatment.

Delta4 Discover is the only transmission detector that is clinically available and that has the technology to perform a complete verification of dose delivery.

Questions that can be answered based on the independent measurements from the Delta4 Discover:
- Will the patient actually receive the treatment prescribed?
- What dose did the OAR receive?
- Can I adapt the last fractions to improve the treatment?
- How can I improve my quality assurance workflow?
- Do I have to perform my regular Pre Treatment Verification?
- Can I remove some of my machine QA work since it verifies all the individual MLC-leafs in real-time?
