AUTOMATIC MEASUREMENT FUNCTIONALITY FOR IMRT PLANS
We have created a way to measure IMRT beams in sequence instead of starting and stopping for each individual beam. Just select the first beam and press start, then press stop after the complete delivery has finished!
To be able to use this functionality, the fields must be sorted in either clockwise or counter clockwise order. If they are not sorted, automatic measurement can be performed using the functionality automatic beam detection via inclinometer.
You first need to allow the measurement computer to work as an “Automatic measurement station”. To do this, go to Tools and choose Configuration. In the dialog, choose Measurement tab, and tick the box at the bottom that says Automatic Field Sequencing, as shown in the image below:
When this is done, you can open the patient to be measured.
1. Select the field that the treatment machine will start with.
2. If the fields are be delivered in a clockwise order, start the measurement by pressing the clockwise button.
If the fields are to be delivered in a counter-clockwise order press the counter clockwise button.
3. Start the treatment and run all beams (e.g. in auto set up mode)
4. Then click on the stop button and save the measurement
