LifeLine Software, Inc. is pleased to inform you that a new version of RadCalc (version 6.3) is now available. We are currently sending out an email annoucement to all of our RadCalc clients who have an up to date maintenance renewal that provides instructions on how to download and install this latest version.

Below is just a sample of the numerous features and benefits that are available to all RadCalc clients who have an up to date maintenance renewal.

RadCalc version 6.3 is the FIRST QA software to provide 3D Dose Volume Verification for Brachytherapy Calculations.

Note: 3D Dose Volume verification for Brachytherapy calculation functions require that both the ROI and Brachytherapy module licenses be purchased.

New Updated Brachytherapy Module with ROI's and Dose Tab:

• View Imported Dose, Computed Dose, Imported DVH, Computed DVH, and Isodose lines in either 2D or 3D views

• View Structures

• Isodose level presets

• Compare calculations against DVH protocol criteria (constraints)

RadCalc 6.3 Provides New Fluence and Dose Map Image Analysis:

• Percent Difference

• Distance to Agreement (DTA)

For each point in reference map, finely resamples comparison map to find closest point with value within a user-defined percentage of the reference value

• Gamma Analysis

For each point in reference map, calculates the gamma value between the reference and comparison map

Supported Image Formats:

• Pinnacle Dose / Fluence / ODM

• DICOM Dose

• Imported fluence

• IBA MatriXX

• Elekta's Monaco Dose

• MapCheck®

• DynaLog/TrajectoryLog

Comparison Techniques/Pre-Treatment:

Compare any of the following:

• RadCalc® Dose

• DICOM Dose

• Pinnacle Dose 

• Pinnacle ODM

• RadCalc® Fluence

• Imported fluence

• MapCheck®

• IBA MatriXX

Comparison Techniques/Post-Treatment:

Compare any of the following:

• Compare RadCalc® or Planning Fluence with DynaLog/TrajectoryLog

RadCalc AIR (Automated Import and Reporting)

Provides the ability to automatically calculate your exported plans and creates reports that can be stored or e-mailed directly to you.

Automated Archive:

The ability to set a time/day of the week to auto archive the patient data base in order to keep your software running efficently.

• Report of Archive sent directly to your email

• Archive physics data automatically

Superficial Calculations:

As well as photon, electron and diode calculations, we have added the ability to verify superficial calculations

Enhanced Plan Comparison Feature:

This feature is primarily designed to detect errors in the verify and record system due to data transfer or manual entry errors. For a particular patient, an existing calculation imported from the planning system can be chosen to compare to a file exported from the verify and record system. The differences between the two sets of data are clearly shown side by side and in red. This feature has been enhanced by providing comparison schemes for common tasks. These schemes allow for customizable tolerances applied to all parameters as well as filtering out unimportant values.
