STARCHECK is a precise and reliable tool for fast measurements in radiation therapy beams. Typical applications are quality control and Linac beam adjustment measurements with the detector panel embedded in a solid state phantom. The ionization chambers feature excellent relative response stability, avoiding the need of frequent recalibration. A full set of four profiles is measured in real-time, making STARCHECK useful for start-up behavior checks of the Linac. Additional detectors distributed along the array’s side axis allow checks of MLC leave positions.
The optional FIELDCHECK and BQ-CHECK phantoms extend the scope of the STARCHECK system allowing to measure the congruence of light and radiation field and to check the constancy of the beam quality of high energy photon and electron beams.
