Patient specific quality assurance is conducted to validate the accurate deliverability of a treatment plan. This QA procedure was designed to improve the quality and safety of radiation treatments particularly those utilizing inverse planning techniques and/or hypofractionation. Numerous products have been developed for this task. This guided tour will begin with an introductory presentation from the moderators on patient specific QA including necessity and the broad array of available techniques. Vendors will then showcase their latest developments and products in patient specific QA followed by a question-and-answer session.
