  1. Quality assurance procedures in radiotherapy. Economic criteria to support decision making.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper details the costs of two types of quality assurance activities in radiotherapy: in vivo dosimetry, intended to check the delivered dose, and portal imaging to check the treated volume.

    For both activities, either on-line or off-line techniques may be used.

    Describing the costs allows the calculation of which techniques are most cost-efficient for different radiotherapy departments.
