QC-Track Module:   CT


The QC-Track module for CT QC meets the needs of the most widely followed regulations in CT quality control, including the ACR Continuous Quality Control Program per their "CT Accreditation Program Requirements" and The Joint Commission "Diagnostic Imaging Requirements," as well as CT vendor QC programs.



Structured Workflow
QC-Track provides the structure needed in any QC program.
  • Worksheet data fields, constants, limits, and calculations
  • On-the-spot pass-fail, with email notifications
  • Standard and Automated Worksheet templates for ACR and vendor QC workflows
  • Easy customization to accommodate site-specific needs, physicist requests, or inspection purposes
  • Modality-specific workflow features, such as daily water phantom tests, can be scheduled in the QC-Track Workflow Scheduler to alternate between axial and helical views for sites that prefer to do only one view per day

QC-Track offers two workflows for CT:
  • Standard Worksheet QC data is entered by the technologist into worksheets on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis, depending on the QC program being followed.
  • Automated Phantom QC is available for the ACR and vendor phantoms. Automated Phantom Analysis provides a fast, flexible, and consistent method to extract and process phantom and DICOM data and automatically insert the data into QC-Track worksheets.

Reports
QC-Track standard reports meet the reporting needs of CT teams, including:
  • QC Checklist Report, to show daily status of QC by test over the selected time period
  • Quarterly reports for physicist review

Electronic Sign Off
Standard QC-Track Sign Off is available for the CT workflow for capturing the ACR-required annual medical physicist sign off on the daily and monthly QC.

Other Resources
ACR
The ACR Continuous Quality Control (CQC) program specifies tests and frequencies within their ACR CT Accreditation Program Requirements. See ACR CT Accreditation Page for more information.

TJC
CT is one of the modalities that falls under The Joint Commission Diagnostic Imaging Requirements, along with MRI, PET, and NM. The TJC requires facilities to identify their QC plan and demonstrate that the team is following the plan. See TJC Compliance Checklist.
