Abstract null null Introduction null With the implementation of new radiotherapy technology, it is imperative that patient experience is investigated alongside efficacy and outcomes. This paper presents the development of a specifically designed validated questionnaire and a first report of international multi-institutional preliminary patient experience of MRI-guided adaptive radiotherapy (MRgART) on the 1.5 T MR-Linac (MRL). null null null Methods null A patient experience questionnaire was de...

Abstract Introduction The role of the Urology Specialist Therapeutic Radiographer (USTR) was introduced to support a busy NHS uro-oncology practice. Key objectives were to improve patient preparedness for and experience of radiotherapy, focussed on prostate cancer. Pre-radiotherapy information seminars were developed, and on-treatment patient review managed by the USTRs. To evaluate the revamped patient pathway and direct further improvements, a patient experience survey was designed. Methods An...

Abstract Introduction IGRT in cervical cancer treatment delivery is complex due to significant target and organs at risk (OAR) motion. Implementing image assessment of soft-tissue target and OAR position to improve accuracy is recommended. We report the development and refinement of a training and competency programme (TCP), leading to on-line Radiation Therapist (RTT) led soft-tissue assessment, evaluated by a prospective audit. Methods and materials The TCP comprised didactic lectures and prac...

Purpose Adaptive radiation therapy strategies could account for interfractional uterine motion observed in patients with cervix cancer, but the current cone beam computed tomography (CBCT)-based treatment workflow is limited by poor soft-tissue contrast. The goal of the present study was to determine if ultrasound (US) could be used to improve visualization of the uterus, either as a single modality or in combination with CBCT. Methods and Materials Interobserver uterine contour agreement and co...

Abstract Introduction In the United Kingdom fiducial marker IGRT is the second most common verification method employed in radical prostate radiotherapy yet little evidence exists to support centres introducing or developing this practice. We developed a survey to elicit current fiducial marker practices adopted in the UK, to recommend standardisation of practice. Methods A 16 question survey was distributed across UK Radiotherapy centres via promotion at the British Uro-Oncology Group Conferenc...
