LifeLine Software, Inc. offers RadCalc® providing fully automated independent monitor unit & point dose verification for conventional, IMRT treatment planning systems, and BrachyTherapy calculations.

Our vision is to create the highest quality software products that exceed our customers' expectations. RadCalc is the number one trusted software of its kind worldwide.

LifeLine Software, Inc. offers RadCalc® providing fully automated independent monitor unit & point dose verification for conventional, IMRT treatment planning systems, and BrachyTherapy calculations. At LifeLine Software Inc., our vision is to create the highest quality software products that exceed our customers' expectations. We will strive to achieve this vision by our commitment and dedication to continuous improvement of all we do in responding to the needs of our customers.

RadCalc® offers you the first and most powerful QA software program FDA 510(k) approved to perform independent Monitor Unit validation calculations much faster and easier, by including fully automated dosimetric calculations, comprehensive institution and physics data setup, import (radiation therapy planning) and export (verify and record) features, powerful reporting tools, flexible site licensing, IMRT support, CyberKnife, Modulated Arc Therapy, Compensator based IMRT, BrachyTherapy, Elekta, Varian & Siemens machine support, and many other features. We believe these advanced features can provide you with the most comprehensive automated DOSIMETRIC validation system available today. Each software package includes setup, installation, training, and hardcopy printouts for billing and patient documentation. Windows NT 4.0, 98, 2000, Me, XP, or Vista compatible.

RadCalc was the first software to offer independent IMRT verification by adding an IMRT utility module in May of 2001. Since that time, RadCalc has become the number one selling software of its kind. We believe are success is driven by our commitment to provide the most fully automated and complete verification software as well as the finest customer and technical support possible.

RadCalc® is now utilized in over 1,000 cancer treatment centers worldwide and continues to grow rapidly as more and more centers are implementing IMRT technology. RadCalc® has become the market leader in independent MU & point dose verification by offering the most complete verification software package available today. Only RadCalc offers fully automated verification by utilizing add on RTP Import and V&R export utilities. RadCalc allows users to import treatment plan parameters directly from RTP systems or export directly to Verify and Record systems thus reducing or eliminating hand entry data errors. For a brief description on the different utilities, please see the product descriptions provided below.

RadCalc Program and Available Utilities

RADCALC BASE PROGRAM: RadCalc® base software program is FDA 510(k) approved to perform independent MU or point dose verification calculations for Conventional treatment plans including Electron, Photon, MLC, 3D Off Axis, Diode, BrachyTherapy, and Enhanced Dynamic Wedge support. Software package includes a CD ROM disk, setup, installation, training, and hardcopy printouts for billing and patient documentation. Fully automated calculations for Conventional and IMRT plans are available by purchasing the RTP Import, V&R Export, and IMRT utilities separately. Windows NT 4.0, 98, 2000, Me, XP, or Vista compatible.

RTP IMPORT UTILITY: The Import utility provides the importing of treatment field parameters from a Radiation Therapy Planning system, Verify and Record system, and/or virtual simulation software. The interface transfers beam name, gantry angle, collimator angle, couch angle, field size, treatment depth, SSD, treatment dose, wedge information, blocked field area, compensator factors, block outlines, either static or dynamic MLC leaf sequences, coordinates of isocenter & calculation point, and the prescription information. RadCalc reads the above information and then performs the calculation.

V AND R EXPORT UTILITY: The V&R Export Utility provides the exporting of treatment field parameters and Monitor Units in a format that is readable by a Verify and Record system and/or Treatment Planning System. Parameters transferred include beam name, gantry angle, collimator angle, couch angle, field size, treatment depth, SSD, treatment dose, wedge information, either static or dynamic MLC leaf sequences, and the prescription information. Client must have RTP: Link, Exchange, or Connect from appropriate V&R vendor available.

IMRT VALIDATION UTILITY: The IMRT Utility provides the verification of MU or point dose calculations for IMRT based treatment plans. The IMRT utility allows you to import from your treatment planning system either static or dynamic MLC leaf sequences. A modified Clarkson integration algorithm in RadCalc utilizes the MLC leaf sequences in order to compute the dose or MU. RadCalc is capable of handling an MLC with up to 200 leaves. The MLC leaf patterns are viewable within RadCalc's MLC Data tab.
