External beam plan and MU checks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Each and every patient plan should receive an initial review by a medical physicist. Guidelines are given in the AAPM Task Group 40 report (Kutcher et al. 1994) and in the ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards (http://www.acr. org /SecondaryMainMenuCategories/quality_safety/guidelines. aspx). e purposes of this present review are threefold: (1) to ensure that the plan will deliver treatment as specied in the physician’s prescription, (2) to check that the plan is clinically reasonable, and (3) to verify that the dosimetric calculations are correct. orough quality control of the treatment planning system does not negate the need to perform the initial plan review.
