Wider acceptance of data standards in radiation oncology would facilitate pooling of data from different studies. In turn, this would help clinicians and medical physicists to better understand the relationships between radiation treatments and consequent late developing side effects, and to design treatment plans that improve patients' quality of life. In this paper, we describe challenges of collecting and integrating radiation oncology data from medical records and treatment planning systems… CONTINUE READING
