Quality assurance of Treatment Planning Systems

Treatment planning has considerably evolved over the last decades. We see, for example, a growing use of automated tools to contour and generate treatment plans and adaptive planning strategies. On the other hand, ancient techniques such as virtual simulation and the use of wedges have become obsolete. This leads to new questions regarding the quality assurance and commissioning of treatment planning systems. Therefore, the NCS initiated a subcommittee that focuses on the QA of treatment planning systems with a special interest in new developments. The subcommittee officially started June 2018.

Topics to be covered

  • Beam modelling
  • Automated planning
  • Scripting
  • Adaptive Planning workflow

The committee will cover photon planning only.
