Joined-up Thinking Targets Multiple-Lesion Dosimetry

IOP Publishing ― Jan 27, 2020 ― The growing clinical application of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for the treatment of metastatic tumours in the brain presents a significant dosimetric and quality assurance (QA) challenge for medical physicists and their clinical colleagues. Put simply, the precision targeting inherent to SRS necessitates all manner of patient, machine and process-level checks to verify that conformal, high-dose radiation is delivered to the patient as intended – usually in one or a few fractions – while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue and organs.
