      Alternative Payment Model in Radiation Oncology
      Since 2014, CMS has explored potential ways to test an episode-based payment model for Radiation Oncology services. This has led to a new RO Model that changes the current fee-for-service to prospective, site neutral, modality agnostic, and episode-based payments. The Model, set to start on January 1, 2022, encompass 30% of eligible episodes in select geographic areas across the US for a five-year period. This webinar details this Model and explores its implications for medical physics services.

Corgi Phantom:
The Corgi Phantom is designed to evaluate cone beam CT systems. The modular phantom can be configured for different scan sizes, providing tests for multi-axis high resolution, sensitometry, cone beam artifacts, and uniformity. Additionally, the phantom includes holes for measuring dose.

Liver Phantom:
The Liver Phantom combines the advantages of objective test objects and anthropomorphic elements for evaluation of advanced iterative processing. The phantom includes low contrast test objects designed both for ROC tests along with conventional patterns, metal artifact inserts, and beads for MTF calculations.
