Summary

A national review of cardiac device policies in use in radiotherapy departments across the UK in 2013 reported that most policies do not reflect current best evidence. The Royal College of Radiologists, the Society and College of Radiographers and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine formed a multidisciplinary working party comprising clinical oncology, cardiology, therapeutic radiography and medical physics expertise to develop evidence-based guidelines for the management of cancer patients receiving radiotherapy with a cardiac implanted electronic device and this clinical guideline is published as a result of this work.
