Commissioning and quality assurance of Calypso four-dimensional target localization system in linear accelerator facility.

Muralidhar KR, Komanduri K, Rout BK, Ramesh KK - J Med Phys (2013)

Bottom Line: Four dimensional (4D) target localization system (Calypso System) was installed at our hospital, which is equipped with Beacon Transponders, Console, Electromagnetic Array, Optical System, Tracking Station, Treatment table overlay, and Calypso kVue Couch top.The objective of this presentation is to describe the results of commissioning measurements carried out on the Calypso System to verify the manufacturer specifications and also to evolve a quality assurance (QA) procedure which can be used to test its performance routinely.These tests were found to be useful to assess the performance of the Calypso System.

ABSTRACT
Four dimensional (4D) target localization system (Calypso System) was installed at our hospital, which is equipped with Beacon Transponders, Console, Electromagnetic Array, Optical System, Tracking Station, Treatment table overlay, and Calypso kVue Couch top. The objective of this presentation is to describe the results of commissioning measurements carried out on the Calypso System to verify the manufacturer specifications and also to evolve a quality assurance (QA) procedure which can be used to test its performance routinely. The QA program consists of a series of tests (QA for checking the calibration or system accuracy, Camera Calibration with L-frame fixture, Camera Calibration with T-frame fixture, System calibration Fixture targets test, Localization, and Tracking). These tests were found to be useful to assess the performance of the Calypso System.

Mentions: The Calypso System console [Figure 2] is a movable unit contains the system components that generate and detect the electromagnetic signals used for patient alignment and continuous monitoring of target position. The console contains electronic power supply, system control components, computer with Calypso System software, and a touch screen display. Calypso System software provides graphics and numerical data for performing quality assurance and calibration procedures for positioning the array and the patient.
