Radiation Therapy Oncology Group: radiosurgery quality assurance guidelines.

Author information

Division of Radiation Oncology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN.


A multidisciplinary Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) task force has developed quality assurance guidelines for radiosurgery. The purpose of the guidelines are fourfold: (1) To ensure that participating institutions have the proper equipment and appropriate technique(s) to administer radiosurgery; (2) to outline a standard data set for each treated patient to assess protocol compliance; (3) to define minor and major deviations in protocol treatment; and (4) to set forth clinical data necessary to determine treatment efficacy, including failure patterns, and treatment toxicity. These guidelines are being implemented into active and developing radiosurgery protocols.
