Commissioning of Radiotherapy Treatment Planning Systems Testing for Typical External Beam Treatment Techniques

IAEA-TECDOC-1583 (978-92-0-100508-3)
76 pages ¦ 0 figures ¦ EUR 15.00


This publication is a guide for the clinical commissioning of radiotherapy treatment planning systems (RTPSs) and provides a simple protocol for this task. The procedures for clinical commissioning tests cover typical treatment techniques used in radiotherapy hospitals and are based on the use of a specific phantom. The purpose of this testing is twofold. Firstly the tests will provide an educational opportunity for the user to become familiar with the operation of the RTPS. Secondly the tests will demonstrate to the user that the logistic chain starting from computed tomography (CT) scanning anatomic modelling treatment planning and monitor unit time (MU) calculation is operable for typical treatment techniques and leads to the desired results with sufficient accuracy.
