You can do an independent, second verification of monitor units that have been calculated or time in static non-IMRT X-ray radiotherapy treatment fields using the MUVerify product. It utilizes AAPM Task Group 114 definitions to compute the MU verification. It's the concensus of many organizations and authors that there is a need for a second independent check, making MUV even more relevant. MUVerify is not intended for radiation delivery; its only purpose is to confirm primary MU. It computes monitor units using simple, well-known methods and provides results independent of the main planning system (TPS). To achieve this independence, some generic dosimetry information based on a library of NPSF, PDD, and additional parameters is included to prevent the use of the same data as your TPS.
