Workstations, Radiotherapy, Record/Verify
Definition : Radiotherapy workstations designed to verify that the proper radiotherapy treatment is being delivered and to provide a permanent record. These workstations include input and output devices for graphical and alphanumeric data (e.g., keyboards, monitors, printers). They usually follow the instructions of software intended to reduce human error by monitoring the parameters of the radiotherapy unit (e.g., linear accelerator), patient information, and dose prescription before commencement of treatment. The information is entered into a patient's file and stored. Record/verify workstations are usually interlocked with the radiotherapy unit to ensure that treatment is not permitted if any parameters are outside the predetermined tolerances. They are used mainly in treatment of cancer and related diseases.
