QC-Track Module:   NM, PET, Fusion
Recent TJC statistics show that Nuc Med has gotten the highest rate of citations in the area of device QC.

Now you can use the QC-Track module for NM and PET QC to put a structured QC workflow in NM and PET departments, and meet the needs of the most widely followed regulations and recommendations in quality control, including the ACR Nuclear Medicine Technologist Quality Control Tests and The Joint Commission "Diagnostic Imaging Requirements," as well as vendor QC programs for the NM and PET vendors.

The NM and PET QC module includes QC workflows needed for the NM and PET portion of fusion units like SPECT/CT and PET/CT systems. The QC needed for the CT or MR portion of fusion units may be optional and is licensed separately.
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
  • Worksheet templates for ACR and vendor QC workflows
  • Easily customizable for site-specific needs, physicist requests, or inspection purposes
  • Modality-specific workflow features, for example, the capacity to track the QC for NM and PET accessories such as dose calibrators and thyroid uptake systems

Data is entered manually into worksheets on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and semiannual basis, depending on the QC program being followed.

Reports
QC-Track standard reports meet the reporting needs of NM and PET 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 NM and PET workflow for capturing the ACR-required annual medical physicist sign off.

Comprehensive QC Program? See also:
  • Credentials -- to track and report CEU/CME and Exam counts by modality
  • Event Tracking -- to schedule and track ongoing QC events such as annual review of safety and procedure documents
  • Document Tracking -- to centrally store, manage and quickly access the entire range of QC documents

Licensing
The QC-Track NM and PET module is an optional add-on to the QC-Track Base Platform. Standard QC is licensed by imaging unit and location. Optional tracking of accessories like dose calibrators, well counters, and thyroid uptake systems is by accessory.

The QC needed for the CT or MR portion of fusion units may be optional. The QC-Track CT and MR modules are licensed separately.

Other Resources
ACR
The ACR Nuclear Medicine Technologist's Quality Control Tests specify required and recommended frequencies. See ACR Nuclear Medicine Accreditation Program Requirements. For more information, see ACR Nuclear Medicine and PET Accreditation Page.

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