Radformation’s take on what it means to be a medical physicist.
2019 Year in Review
2019 was filled with hard work, excitement, and growth for the Radformation team. Join us as we take a look at our year in review.
We’ve been working hard on our upcoming product, QuickCode, an automated billing QA tool that catches missed or incorrect charges captured within ARIA®. Stay tuned for more information and an official product launch in early 2020.
We headed to the golden coast for the 45th annual AAMD meeting. Kalpana Vaidya, M.S, CMD from Northwell Health presented their findings on EZFluence in comparison to manually generated plans. We were thrilled to have our Efficiency Expert, Kari Beach, CMD RT(T)(R), teach EZFluence at Varian’s Eclipse Treatment Planning Workshop. In addition to the events named above, we made it to AAPM’s Spring Clinical, RSS, COMP, and more! We can’t wait to do it all again next year.
This year, we were cleared to sell in the European and Australian markets with our first overseas clinic in Zurich. It’s exciting to see our software begin to standardize high-quality treatment planning all over the world, one step at a time.
The Department of Radiation Medicine and Applied Sciences at UCSD discovered that EZFluence enabled them to change their workflow for clinically transformative time savings. Because EZFluence is able to generate multiple plan options in less than a minute, UCSD was able to evaluate a new workflow where the physician chooses and approves a plan with the dosimetrist in one step. This new workflow removed the back-and-forth process of reviewing and editing the plan over multiple days. Their conventional treatment planning process that took 4-5 days was reduced to an average of 6 minutes.
Last month, we launched our physicist interview blog series, The Focal Spot, in which Radformation physicist Tyler Blackwell chats with other fellow medical physicists. Our goal is to cultivate community by sharing their work and ideas and to illuminate their personal story. Check out the first interview featuring Alois Ndlovu, Ph.D., the Director of Medical Physics at John Theurer Cancer Center.
