Most recent status update:TG-221 has been positively reviewed by a committee representing the WG-BCA and the BTSC. Final approval of the report by BTSC will soon be sought to advance the report to the TPC. Prior to this step, the ESTRO ACROP committee has been reviewing the draft to determine if ESTRO or GEC-ESTRO will formally "endorse" the report. It was determined by ESTRO that the report would not be a "joint" report; however, we are hoping to have the "endorsement" of GEC-ESTRO (or ESTRO). Some minor changes are being made to address the interests and concerns of the ESTRO ACROP committee. We also intend to submit the report for scientific editing, most likely after TPC review. - [7/28/2016 by Christopher Melhus] Click to update.
