Abstract

Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) has the potential to conform dose to complex target structures as well as sparing normal tissue. The complexity of the technique requires additional verification steps to ensure that the treatments are planned, transferred and delivered correctly. IMRT was introduced at the Illawarra Cancer Care Centre (ICCC) in 2002. Since that time over 70 head-and-neck cases have been treated. An overview of the current IMRT QA program at the ICCC and a summary of QA results for the last 5 years will be presented.
