Radiation Oncology Nomenclature Resource Page

American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) formed a task group (TG-263) to develop a consensus position on nomenclature for use in clinical trials, data-pooling initiatives, population-based studies, and routine clinical care. The task group was composed of a diverse international group of stake holders: hospital-based physicists and physicians, vendor representatives and dosimetrists. The task group included AAPM, American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) , European Society for Therapeutic Radiation Oncology (ESTRO) members, large academic centers, community clinics, vendors, and leaders from NRG, IHE-RO and the DICOM Working Group - 7. Many TG members were also members of clinical trial groups including NRG, Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG), Children’s Oncology Group (COG), and IROC and had been involved in creating standardization templates within those groups.

The report is complete, this page provides links to documents and resources to assist end users in application and implementation of the nomenclature.

The work of the group will continue addressing a wider range elements and incorporating new and evolving needs from clinical, research and trails efforts. As needs and solutions for the nomenclature evolve, the resources on this page will be updated.
