Committee Keywords: TG239
Most recent status update:A working draft of the report has been constructed. In addition, the group has designed and produced a platform-independent phantom for QA of image-guided robotic-assisted interventions. The phantom is now being tested and optimized in one site and a QA protocol is being developed. It will then be used in a minimum of three sites to collect QA data, analyze the results and include in the report. All recipes and protocols for the QA will be provided as part of the TG deliverable. - [7/13/2016 by Keyvan Farahani] Click to update.
