The Delta4 Phantom+ for MR-linacs

The Delta4 Phantom+ MR is an innovative device for addressing pre-treatment quality assurance (QA) for highly modulated radiotherapy treatment plans in MR-linacs.

It is the ONLY system that measures the dose distribution in the isocentric region and not simply in one single flat or wrapped plane.

The patented geometric, dual orthogonal detector planes and the nature of the detectors make the Delta4 Phantom+ MR a unique quality assurance system.

MR-compliant for field strengths up to 1.5T

Fulfills the requirements in TG-218

Delta4 software

Streamline your workflow

Integrated software

Keep up an efficient clinical workflow, thanks to well-integrated software. TPS plans can be easily imported together with TPS doses and structures.

Intuitive interface

Easily navigate between patients, measurements, and analysis. All the information you need is just a click away. The QA analysis is performed automatically as soon as the dose has been delivered, instantly indicating pass or fail.

Delta4 software

Instant and accurate analysis

Instant results

Your QA results, including dose deviation, distance to agreement (DTA), and gamma index, become available instantly—no further processing required. Easily customize QA reports to meet your specific needs.

Powerful analysis

The unique 4D measurements yield the data needed to analyze the delivered dose for fraction, beam arc, or control point. The delivered 4D dose can also be analyzed in the patient’s anatomy. The Delta4DVH suite of software modules provide unique analysis tools for finding the clinical significance of a deviation.

Testimonials

What our customers say

The Delta4 Phantom+ MR is quick and easy to use and gives us confidence that our treatments are delivered just as they are intended.

Wilfred de Vries Clinical Physicist Engineer, UMC Utrecht

After good results of a number of tests, we decided to expand our existing Delta4 Phantom+ portfolio with the MR-compatible Delta4 Phantom+ MR.

Ulf Isacsson Chief Physicist, Uppsala University Hospital

We are very much looking forward to using the MR-compatible Delta4 Phantom+ at our Viewray MRIdian Linac as well as at our Elekta and Tomotherapy Linacs to further advance and streamline our patient QA.

Sebastian Klüter, PhD Medical Physicist, Department of Radiation Oncology, Heidelberg University Hospital
