Dosimetric inter-institutional comparison in European radiotherapy centres: Results of IAEA supported treatment planning system audit
TLDR
The TPS audit project using the IAEA methodology has verified the treatment planning system calculations for 3D conformal radiotherapy in a group of radiotherapy centres in Europe and contributed to achieving better understanding of the performance of TPSs and helped to resolve issues related to imaging, dosimetry and treatment planning.

Concomitant Radiochemotherapy of Cervical Cancer
TLDR
The correlation between the number of treatments, the therapeutic and the side effects could be verified and it can be stated that the optimal weekly dose of cisplatin is 30 mg/m2. Expand
Multicatheter interstitial brachytherapy versus intensity modulated external beam therapy for accelerated partial breast irradiation: A comparative treatment planning study with respect to dosimetry
TLDR
The target volume can be appropriately irradiated by both techniques, but MIBT generally spares normal tissues and organs at risk better than IMRT. Expand
The European Federation of Organisations for Medical Physics Policy Statement No. 10.1: Recommended Guidelines on National Schemes for Continuing Professional Development of Medical Physicists.
TLDR
This EFOMP Policy Statement, which is an amalgamation and an update of the EFOMp Policy Statements No. 8 and No. 10, presents guidelines for the establishment of national schemes for C PD and activities that should be considered for CPD. Expand
The European Federation of Organisations for Medical Physics Policy Statement No. 6.1: Recommended Guidelines on National Registration Schemes for Medical Physicists.
TLDR
This EFOMP Policy Statement is an update of Policy Statement No. 6 and takes into account the European Union Parliament and Council Directive 2013/55/EU that amends Directive 2005/36/EU on the recognition of professional qualifications and the European Commission Radiation Protection Report No. 174, Guidelines on Medical Physics Expert.

[Field matching in breast irradiation]
TLDR
The average dose to the ipsilateral lung is reduced using the IMRT (intensity modulated radiotherapy) technique by approximately 10% compared with the conventional technique, and this new technique has the possibility to improve the field match between the tangential fields and the parasternal field, while maintaning the field matching between the axillary and supraclavicular fields. Expand
External Beam Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation: Dosimetric Assessment of Conformal and Three Different Intensity Modulated Techniques
TLDR
Good target volume coverage and tolerable dose to the organs at risk are achievable with all four techniques and taking into account all aspects, the SW IMRT technique is recommended for APBI. Expand
Medical physics in Europe following recommendations of the International Atomic Energy Agency
TLDR
Recommendations of the IAEA Regional Meeting on Medical Physics in Europe shall be followed and enforced in all European states and Appropriate qualification framework including education, clinical specialization, certification and registration of medical physicists shall be established. Expand
[Dosimetric comparison of different techniques for external beam accelerated partial breast irradiation].
TLDR
Good target volume coverage and tolerable dose to the organs at risk are achievable with all four techniques, and taking into account all the aspects, the sliding window IMRT technique for accelerated partial breast irradiation is recommended. Expand
Verification of quality parameters for portal images in radiotherapy
TLDR
On the base of physical characteristics, measured in this work, the authors suggest the use of amorphous-silicon EPIDs producing the best image quality, compared with older versions of EPIDs like SLIC and VEPID, which have a poor DICOM implementation. Expand
