MRID3D Thumbnail
QUASAR™MRID3D Geometric Distortion Analysis System is a new, patent pending, cost-effective QA system for quantifying geometric distortion in 3D MR images. Analysis is performed on images for diagnostic and guidance applications. Unlike other distortion analysis products, which only sample a few imaging planes, QUASAR™ MRID3D analyzes the entire 3D field of view in a single acquisition.

DCE-CT Thumbnail
QUASAR™Dynamic Contrast Enhanced CT (DCE-CT) is routinely used for cancer imaging and staging. Contrast agent (Iodine) injections lead to a large range of density values in vessels of different size and orientation. These variables, although important, are not fully tested with current QA techniques.

QUASAR Testimonial

The Importance of Confidence

“AAPM TG-53 made clear recommendations on multiple tests that need to be considered for evaluating the dosimetric and nondosimetric components of radiation therapy planning systems. QUASAR™ is a very important component of any radiation therapy department’s quality assurance toolkit. It ensures that all your equipment is working together. Ultimately, it provides confidence that your patient is getting the best possible treatment.”
