Pattern Of Practice for Adaptive and Real Time Radiation Therapy (POP-ART RT) survey

The present survey has been established by the participants of the 2nd ESTRO physics workshop from the track "realtime and adaptive management of anatomical variations" held in October 2018 in Málaga, Spain. It is open until 31 July 2019.

The study has two aims.

This international survey contains questions on the current use of gating/tracking for respiratory motion management, and for adaptive radiotherapy using multiple treatment plans for the management of interfraction motion.

The survey also contains questions on plans for further or new implementation of real-time and adaptive motion management techniques, and the main barriers and challenges preventing wider use.
