Most recent status update:The extension to 12/31/2017 was approved and notified by Larry DeWerd, website update is pending. Vote to add new member, Robert Hearn, was approved; he is from theragenics, one of the two largest vendors of the lung mesh. Adding another new member, Dale Boyce, is under process; he is from isoray, another one of the two largest vendors of the lung mesh. We had face-to-face meeting at AAPM 2015, also we had monthly teleconference on the following date, 04/01, 05/20, 06/24, 07/17, 08/19, 09/25, 10/29/2015. Recommendation from WGBCA is to change charge to include other sites like Head and Neck, Breast, Brain, etc; after lengthy discussion, Task Group concluded to keep the original charge and add a paragraph to describe the difference between lung and other sites. First draft is ~50% complete now, and is planned to finish in earlier 2016; revision will continue till end of 2016. At this point, we are still on target for project completion date of 12/2017. - [12/4/2015 by Wenzheng Feng] Click to update.
