Methods and results for commissioning of the complete VMAT delivery chain are presented for the combination of Nucletron's Oncentra MasterPlan® v3.3 with Elekta's Mosaiq® v1.6 and SynergyS® linac. VMAT specific linac commissioning included determination of the size of the minimal dynamic leaf gap. Dosimetric validation of the complete treatment chain was performed using a 2D-ionization-chamber-array and showed excellent dosimetric results.
