Call for volunteers for BIR working party

VOLUNTEERS are sought to join a British Institute of Radiology working party to produce an addendum to the 2003 BIR Report on Geometric Uncertainties.

The addendum will address, within the overall framework of the 2003 report, factors that affect the practical determination of CTV- PTV margins when daily on-line image guidance and modern intensity modulated treatments are used.

The scope will include impacts of residual geometrical errors such as intrafraction motion, uncorrected target rotation, delineation and registration errors amongst others.

The working party will operate from autumn 2017 to the end of 2018, and will primarily operate through telephone conferences, with one or two face-to-face meetings.

Volunteers, who should have a demonstrable interest in geometric uncertainties in image-guided radiotherapy, should contact the BIR working party organiser at by Friday 8 September.
