The second edition of the “Good Practice Guide for Paediatric Radiotherapy“ was created by clinical experts from The Royal College of Radiologists (RCR), the Society and College of Radiographers, and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine, as well as the Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group, which represents childhood cancer experts from across the UK.
The comprehensive, easy-to-read document is intended for all UK healthcare workers and service managers involved in paediatric radiotherapy and updates the first good practice guide, which was published in 2012.
The new version takes account of the more widespread adoption of intensity-modulated radiotherapy and image-guided radiotherapy, as well as the development of NHS proton beam radiotherapy services. It also factors in new Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations which came into force in February 2018, as well as RCR recommendations for the peer review of tumour contouring ahead of treatment.
