MELBOURNE, Fla., March 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Sun Nuclear Corporation announced today that Australia's Northern Sydney Cancer Centre (NSCC) is now a reference site for the SunCHECK™ Quality Management Platform. The Centre joins leading clinics worldwide already in the reference site program. Globally, SunCHECK technology is used by more than 1,000 users in nearly 60 countries – for integrated, automated and independent Quality Assurance in Radiation Therapy.

In partnering with Sun Nuclear, the NSCC will support development of best practices for clinical use, advise on ongoing platform development, and serve as a regional resource for a rapidly-growing community of SunCHECK users. The NSCC is an integrated cancer care network, provided by the Northern Sydney Local Health District (NSLHD). As a public facility with university affiliations, the NSCC is actively involved in cancer research and dedicated to improving outcomes for patients and their families. The center treats more than 1,400 patients annually, using three Varian Medical Systems® linear accelerators and a robust auto-planning program. The NSCC also uses an Elekta brachytherapy system.

Jeremy Booth, Head of Medical Physics for the NSCC, stated that the center is a pioneer in advanced treatments, initiating its IMRT program in 2001 and its SBRT program in 2007. Today, the NSCC remains focused on continually investigating the feasibility of technological changes, including motion management.
