Athena for Machine QA


Athena is designed to analyse open fields, hard and Enhanced Dynamic Wedge fields and to check the beam parameters.

It offers conversion of the Portal Vision integrated images to dose to water matrix and its analysis comparing measured versus measured (or calculated) dose matrices.

Following beam parameters can be analysed:

  • Homogenity
  • Symmetry
  • Open and wedge beams commissioning
  • Output factors
  • Wedge angles and factors
  • Beam energy stability verification without water phantom using plastic step wedge

Very fast verification of the TPS performance by comparing calculated dose in water with the measured dose distribution.
