Prostate SBRT Plan Study Competition Winner Announced!

Congratulations to Qianyi Xu, medical physicist at Cooper University Hospital in Camden, New Jersey! Qianyi’s prostate cancer treatment plan for the CyberKnife System received top score in a stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) planning competition co-sponsored by the Radiosurgery Society and the American Association of Medical Dosimetrists.

Goals of this Study

The goals of this study were to:

  1. quantify the relative capabilities of different planners, planning systems, and delivery modalities to create a highly conformal dose to a prostate target
  2. study the variability across all submitted plans
  3. determine, then communicate, “best practices” to share with the radiation oncology community.
