Ensuring the quality of radiation delivery is crucial part of radiation research. This group developed a comprehensive quality assurance protocol and phantom for the SARRP system. This phantom is used to assess various parameters of the quality of imaging, dosimetry and treatment planning software. It can be used daily, monthly or annually for QA measurements and the full protocol is outlined in this paper for reference. It found that after months of using multiple phantoms and various procedures that the quality of this device was comparable to more laborious procedures. This allows for quicker QA measurements and analysis of the SARRP, so it can be performed daily is necessary.
