Paperless Radiotherapy Department: Digital Procedures For Radiation Delivery


Abstract


The activities of a Radiation Oncology Department are based on the collection, processing, use, transmission, exchange and storage of a large amount of data, information, images and knowledge. It imposes, therefore, the need to manage data flow in an efficient mode. Since clinical evaluation, treatment prescription, anatomical data acquisition, volumes delimitation, dose calculation up to treatment verification and delivery, data and images of each step are digitally recorded in Record and Verify system. Paperless can potentially relieve radiotherapy oncology, nurses, technical radiotherapy and secretaries from simple and repetitive tasks, and allow them to work on other important tasks, and in the end to improve the quality and safety of radiation therapy treatments.
