Acumyn and Standard Imaging form Collaboration for Automated QA

Acumyn’s AQUA platform has the power to improve the efficiency and workflows in radiation therapy departments—including providing automated daily quality assurance (QA) for radiation therapy clinics and hospitals. AQUA can directly interface with automated quality control software and hardware to minimize the burden of QA activities, and Standard Imaging has become one of the first radiation calibration instrument manufacturers to integrate their technology—the QA BeamChecker Plus—with the AQUA platform to realize these benefits.

“We are pleased to welcome Standard Imaging to the AQUA ecosystem as an early OEM partner sharing our vision to deliver an automated QA platform to oncology clinics worldwide,” says Ferhan Bulca, CEO of Acumyn.

“We believe a unified and integrated approach to QA data sharing has the potential to improve efficiency and usefulness in patient care. Products like AQUA and Standard Imaging’s new QA Pilot software are efficient data management solutions for the future of radiation therapy’s knowledge based QA platforms,” says Edward Neumueller, CEO of Standard Imaging, Inc.

Under an exclusive global agreement AQUA is sold and marketed by Elekta who will be demonstrating this vendor-neutral system on their booth at the 3rd ESTRO Forum in Barcelona, Spain in April 2015. Demonstrations will highlight AQUA’s integration with Elekta Linacs, the QA BeamChecker Plus as well as other QA devices and radiation therapy hardware.

Acumyn is the Ontario-based company behind the development of AQUA, an end-to-end system for managing department-level quality assurance workflows and scheduling in radiation therapy that provides a software link between the disparate systems in a department. Standard Imaging is a US-based leading provider of radiation calibration instruments used in radiation therapy and other medical fields.
