AAPM Members, Affiliates and Non-Member Affiliates - Login for access to additional information

Charge

The primary charge of this TG is to develop a set of guidelines regarding the Monte Carlo related information that should be included when publishing studies that include Monte Carlo simulations. This TG will develop guidelines and a checklist, similar to the STARD and PRISMA standards for diagnostic studies and meta-analyses, respectively, among others, for the items that should be included in reports that involve a Monte Carlo study for diagnostic imaging or radiotherapy research. These items should allow a knowledgeable reader to determine if scientifically sound methods and parameters were used during the study. Also, guidelines on reporting simulation results will be considered. It is envisioned that the appropriate journals in the field will endorse these guidelines.
