  1. Develop test cases including those for realistic clinical scenarios to facilitate commissioning of MBDCAs incorporated in clinical treatment planning systems, and to allow users to independently assess potential differences expected in moving from the current TG-43-based standard of clinical practice in treatment planning dosimetry to the use of a MBDCA.
  2. Design, implement, maintain and update a comprehensive web based MBDCA registry to facilitate the distribution of test case data.
  3. Establish an agile, fast and fluid communication process that allows the WG to interact with both MBDCA clinical users and vendors.
  4. Promote awareness in issues pertinent to the adoption of MBDCAs in clinical practice and initiatives for training the clinical users in MBDCA good practices.
  5. Engage the vendors in maintaining the current standard of global uniformity in clinical brachytherapy treatment planning dosimetry in the MBDCA era, through the development of appropriate tools and procedures.
