Most recent status update:As of mid June 2016, we have changed reporting strategy due to the length and quality of the submitted inputs. We now have a nearly complete draft, missing one major section and some "glue" sections. This should be completed and ready for external review by the end of the summer. This will be intended for on-line publication. A very condensed version which fits the normal Medical Physics page length requirements for hard copy publication will then be prepared and submitted, with an emphasis on key trends in the topic area. This way we will flag the key results, while preserving the excellent work of the Task Group members. - [6/14/2016 by Kirby Vosburgh] Click to update.
