Improving quality in
Radiation Oncology
using Clinical Audits
(IROCA)

Foreword

Improving quality of radiotherapy requires constant evaluation of key elements of care. In order to foster the quality and efficacy of radiotherapy, we decided to establish a joint project aimed at interinstitutional comparison of chosen quality indicators in radiotherapy procedures. This project is a continuation of the previous project which was accomplished in 2014 – A two institution study on rectal cancer radiotherapy indicators (Fundowicz et al. Radiology and Oncology 2014; 25;48(2):210-8).
