BeldART-SRS encompasses mailed audits for intracranial Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) in Belgium. The project is financed by the College of Medicine-radiotherapy and the FOD Healthcare. All Belgian centers are offered the possibility to participate to the dosimetry audit without charge.
The audit consists of 2 parts:
1) Control of basic dosimetry in a water tank using alanine positioned with a 3D printed holder and a Solid Water phantom
The water tank is used for testing in standard fields and the Solid Water phantom for testing in small fields.
2) End-to-end verification of plans delivered on a STEEV Stereotactic End-to-End Verification Phantom (CIRS Inc.)
BELdART uses a combination alanine-EMR-dosimetry and Gafchromic film dosimetry.
