Description:

Achieving Quality in Brachytherapy addresses the main issues that often prevent correct delivery of brachytherapy treatment. It explains how to set up a functional quality assurance program in brachytherapy as well as covering all the steps from the initial planning required to the detailed specification needed to undertake particular treatment plans. It highlights the importance of planning as a means of controlling and dealing with errors during the treatment process and advises what to check and how to check during treatment to ensure effective quality assurance. It is a comprehensive and detailed reference for for professionals working in brachytherapy. physics, and radiation oncology. It is suitable as an introduction for trainees a with first degree in medical physics or clinical radiation oncology.

Table of content:

General considerations in quality management in brachytherapy.

Quality assurance for manual-loading, low dose-rate brachytherapy sources.

Quality management for a treatment plan.

Quality management for manually loaded, low dose-rate applications.

Quality management for high dose-rate units.

Quality management for high dose-rate treatment plans.

Quality management for low and medium dose-rate remote afterloaders.

Quality management for brachytherapy appliances.

Quality management for dosimetric treatment planning.

Readership:

practising radiation oncology / therapy physicists; supplementary reference for students of the same; radiation oncologists and radiation oncology residents.
