Pattern Of Practice for Adaptive and Real Time Radiation Therapy (POP-ART RT) survey
Publication Date: May 7th, 2019 09:44, Category: Associated Organisations Announcements
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.
- To determine to what extent and how adaptive and real-time radiotherapy is being used in clinical practice.
- To understand what the barriers to implementation or further use are.
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.
