Ladies and Gentlemen,

GenesisCare Spain has invested in the latest Quality Assurance technology to ensure that the treatment dose is delivered exactly as prescribed, in real-time, during every treatment fraction for every patient. The IQM’s real-time verification during the treatment fraction allows GenesisCare Spain to fully comply with the latest risk management guidelines such as the 2013/59/EURATOM directive and the Spanish MARR guidelines.

IQM is the paradigm shift that we needed in quality assurance,” says Carlos Rodrigues, Clinical Development Manager - Europe at GenesisCare. “Making QA effortless for every patient, during every fraction and in real-time. Today’s clinical reality of highly complex treatment techniques, fewer treatment fractions, adaptive treatments, and shorter waiting times before starting the course of treatment requires a robust, dependable and seamless QA, which is what IQM delivers.
