The success and interest level in the “Plan Challenge” has now permeated to the AAPM, where we will be integrating a AAPM-dedicated Plan Challenge into a 2-hour special session on Plan Quality at the 2014 Spring Clinical Meeting.
In this Plan Challenge, we offer our first hypofractionated lung case. Participation is encouraged from physicists and dosimetrists alike, both domestic and international. Results will be presented for the first time on March 15, 2015 in Denver, CO, but we will repeat the results via live webinars and/or videos posted online after the AAPM spring meeting.
Here are some key links regarding the 2014 AAPM Plan Challenge:
– Link to register (which will kick off the ROR portal that will steer you through the process)
– Link to a recorded meeting going over the anatomy, objectives, and other interesting discussions on the particular Plan Quality Algorithm to be used
– For Quality Reports users, here is a link to a downloadable protocol which you can import directly into Quality Reports 1.1 or later, to allow self-scoring. Use the protocol labeled “AAPM Plan Challenge.”
