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 ================================================================ Cardiff 12 Jul. 07 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 -- ================================================================ Emiliano Spezi PhD Department of Medical Physics Velindre Cancer Centre Velindre Road CF14 2TL - Voice: +44(0)2920 316264 Cardiff (United Kingdom) - Fax: +44(0)2920 316293 Email: Emiliano.Spezi@velindre-tr.wales.nhs.uk ================================================================ 1.
