Task Group No. 236 AAPM Recommendations on 3D Image-based Treatment Planning, Dosimetry and Quality Management for Intracavitary Brachytherapy

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


1. Review the literature and vendors' guidelines for 3-D volume-image-based intracavitary brachytherapy. 2. Develop a consensus on clinical workflow using the TG 100 framework for the implementation of image-based intracavitary brachytherapy. 3. Develop a consensus on QM program for clinical implementation of 3-D image based intracavitary brachytherapy using CT and MR, with an emphasis on 3-D issues, for example: a. Verification of physical dimensions of applicator in imaging datasets; b. Verification of applicator 3-D reconstruction accuracy; c. Verification of does volume histogram; and d. Recommendation on the optimal imaging techniques such as use of contrast medium in the imaging of applicator for less dose perturbation and improved accuracy in reconstructed volume.
