QC Program Templates
QC Program Templates are pre-built collections of QC Worksheets.

QC Program Templates are made up of QC Worksheets to complete all of the tests needed for a wide range of QC needs, including FDA MQSA/ACR Digital QC, ACR Continuous Quality Control programs, manufacturer quality programs, AIUM QC program, and AAPM recommended QC programs. In addition, many clients use QC Program Templates to comply with TJC Diagnostic Imaging Requirements, state requirements, and QC workflows requested by medical physicists.

QC Program Templates have been proven in inspections across the country and across modalities.

QC Program Templates can include Standard and Automated Phantom Analysis worksheets. QC Program Templates and QC Worksheets can be used off-the-shelf or customized to meet specific QC situations.

Atirix creates QC Worksheets using the built-in QC-Track Worksheet EditorTM. The Worksheet Editor provides a rich set of operators needed across the full range of quality control tests, including calculations with thresholds, pass/fail fields, baselines and constants, pull-forward fields, and a wide range of math functions.

QC-Programs, as complete off-the-shelf workflows, help jump start the implementation process. The Atirix Client Services team can focus on the things that matter as they work with the client to help craft a complete standardized QC workflow. Implementation steps include:
  • Confirm and set baselines, constants, and limits for all of the imaging units in a fleet, a location, or by individual unit
  • For Ultrasound QC, install and make any changes to the QC Worksheets for transducer phantom QC and HLD/exam traceability
  • For NucMed/PET/Fusion QC, install and make any changes to the QC Worksheets for probes, well counters, and other QC'd accessories, and
  • Identify and add worksheets for typical imaging accessories like injectors, printers, and monitors, as well as any other related accessories that might be part of a room, like crash carts and even US "CleanShield" closets
