LifeLine Software, Inc. is pleased to inform you that a new version of RadCalc (version 6.3) is now available. We are currently sending out an email annoucement to all of our RadCalc clients who have an up to date maintenance renewal that provides instructions on how to download and install this latest version.
Below is just a sample of the numerous features and benefits that are available to all RadCalc clients who have an up to date maintenance renewal.
RadCalc version 6.3 is the FIRST QA software to provide 3D Dose Volume Verification for Brachytherapy Calculations.
Note: 3D Dose Volume verification for Brachytherapy calculation functions require that both the ROI and Brachytherapy module licenses be purchased.
New Updated Brachytherapy Module with ROI's and Dose Tab:
• View Imported Dose, Computed Dose, Imported DVH, Computed DVH, and Isodose lines in either 2D or 3D views
• View Structures
• Isodose level presets
• Compare calculations against DVH protocol criteria (constraints)
RadCalc 6.3 Provides New Fluence and Dose Map Image Analysis:
• Percent Difference
• Distance to Agreement (DTA)
For each point in reference map, finely resamples comparison map to find closest point with value within a user-defined percentage of the reference value
• Gamma Analysis
For each point in reference map, calculates the gamma value between the reference and comparison map
Supported Image Formats:
• Pinnacle Dose / Fluence / ODM
• DICOM Dose
• Imported fluence
• IBA MatriXX
• Elekta's Monaco Dose
Compare any of the following:
• RadCalc® Dose
• DICOM Dose
• Pinnacle Dose
• Pinnacle ODM
• RadCalc® Fluence
• Imported fluence
• IBA MatriXX
Compare any of the following:
• Compare RadCalc® or Planning Fluence with DynaLog/TrajectoryLog
RadCalc AIR (Automated Import and Reporting)
Provides the ability to automatically calculate your exported plans and creates reports that can be stored or e-mailed directly to you.
The ability to set a time/day of the week to auto archive the patient data base in order to keep your software running efficently.
• Report of Archive sent directly to your email
• Archive physics data automatically
As well as photon, electron and diode calculations, we have added the ability to verify superficial calculations
Enhanced Plan Comparison Feature:
This feature is primarily designed to detect errors in the verify and record system due to data transfer or manual entry errors. For a particular patient, an existing calculation imported from the planning system can be chosen to compare to a file exported from the verify and record system. The differences between the two sets of data are clearly shown side by side and in red. This feature has been enhanced by providing comparison schemes for common tasks. These schemes allow for customizable tolerances applied to all parameters as well as filtering out unimportant values.
If you would like to learn more about version 6.3 and the ROI or Brachytherapy modules, please contact our sales department for more information and a quote.
Coming Next: 3D Dose Volume verification for Photon/Electron calculations
In late 2015/early 2016 we anticipate releasing a new RadCalc module that will provide a fast and accurate 3D Dose Volume verification for photon and electron calculations. We will provide more detailed information as we get closer to the release date.
Thank you, please stay tuned for more details.

RadCalc® is one example of our commitment to responding to the needs of Radiation Oncology health care providers by contributing to the enhancement of the quality of their work, and to the quality of life of their patients.
RadCalc® was developed by our board certified physicist to make independent Dosimetric calculation verification accurate, quick, and easy, by including fully automated dosimetric calculations (RadCalc AIR), import (from radiation therapy planning systems) and export (to verify and record systems) features, multiple site support, and many other features not found in other Dosimetric calculation verification programs.
Through the years, LifeLine Software has demonstrated a commitment to move in-step with the changing TPS technology as well as our customer needs through our support of IMRT, VMAT, and Brachytherapy treatment deliveries. Another example of this commitment to remain on the cutting edge of technology is our latest RadCalc® release that is the first to provide 3D Dose Volume dosimetric verification for Brachytherapy calculations. LifeLine Software is also the first and only company to offer Superficial Calculation verification as well as a Plan Comparison tool. Soon, we will be adding a new module that will provide 3D Dose Volume verification for Photon/Electron calculations.
At LifeLine Software, Inc., we want to be your partner in providing the most complete dosimetric verification software. We are not satisfied until you are completely satisfied with our products. Our success is measured by the satisfaction of you, our valued customer. We offer personalized service, provided by our Certified Medical Dosimetrists that are available to assist you with any technical support need.
