Committee Keywords: TG221
Most recent status update:TG-221 has been reviewed by TPC twice. The draft report has been revised in response to the most recent review and will be sent out for scientific editing at this time (with expected completion in January 2018). The TPC lead reviewer (Moran) is aware of these plans and has requested the editing at this stage, so SC will have the edited report available for review. ESTRO has also reviewed this draft and has agreed to "endorse" it. We plan to submit the draft to Medical Physics after successful TPC and SC review. We are hopeful that this will take place in late winter / spring 2018. - [11/20/2017 by Christopher Melhus] Click to update.
