S-810 micro computer (Manufactured by Uptron India Ltd.) has been interfaced to RFA- 3 and DPD-5 (manufactured by M/ s. Therados of Sweden). Software has been developed and tested for both REA-3 and DPD-5. The software package for DPD-5 monitors the radiation dose given to a patient and logs the on-line radiation dose data in a file for later references. A check is also provided to make sure that the radiation doses are within the set – limits for all channels. The software package for RFA-3 supports the measurement of dose distribution in a water phantom. Different scanning modes can be selected under software control. The data collected in the file can be either dumped onto the line printer or plotted directly on to the X-Y plotter. Both the above mentioned software packages have been developed in the PL/s language. This language has been developed by M/s. Softek on the microcomputers specifically for real-time applications and is a sub-set of PL/1. The software developed is very useful in handling large amount of dose data measured by DPD-5. Also, it enables to collect the beam data by means of RFA- 3 in a form which is compatable to the treatment Planning System requirements. The S-810 Uptron microcomputer is portable and thus can be moved to the site along with either DPD-5 or RFA-3.
