None Status of Monte Carlo Treatment Planning in Europe 

Keywords: A Survey on the status of Monte Carlo Treatment Planning in Europe
Forum: Medical Applications
Date: 18 Aug, 2007
From: EMILIANO <EMILIANO>

Dear colleagues,


Please find below a message regarding a questionnaire on the use of 
MC in treatment planning in the countries of the European Union. 

The survey is being advertised in the European Federation of Organisations 
for Medical Physics web site (EFOMP: www.efomp.org), through the 
distribution lists of national member organizations of medical physics 
in the countries of the EU and through the most popular physics Monte 
Carlo mailing lists.

I hope that this initiative can be of interest for the medical 
applications section of the GEANT4 community forum.
Please feel free to share this message with your collaborators.

Best regards,

Emiliano Spezi

Dear colleague,


RE: EWG-MCTP survey: status of MCTP in Europe


 On behalf of the European Workgroup on Monte Carlo Treatment 
Planning (EWG-MCTP) (1) I would like to invite you to complete an 
on-line questionnaire on the use of Monte Carlo (MC) technology 
in the medical physics environment within the countries of the 
European Union.

 MC based dose calculation engines are currently being implemented 
into commercial treatment planning systems. In October 2006 the 
"First European Workshop on Monte Carlo treatment planning", 
was organized at the Ghent University (Belgium) as an initiative 
of the EWG-MCTP. This follows similar initiatives across the 
Atlantic (2). The success of these scientific events reflects the 
continuously raising interest in MCTP within the clinical environment.

 The aim of this questionnaire is to survey the current status 
of MC applications in treatment planning across Europe and to 
provide a realistic snapshot of how much MCTP technology in 
breaking through clinical practice, research and development at 
the European level. 

 The questionnaire is built with 12 independent modular sections 
including brachytherapy, dosimetry, external beam radiotherapy, 
nuclear medicine and radiation protection. The completion of the 
questionnaire should not take more than 10 minutes. To start the 
questionnaire please follow this link (3). 
 
Thank you for participating to this survey.

Yours sincerely,

Emiliano Spezi
