Monte Carlo secondary dose calculation has recently become available as a new option for plan quality assurance (QA). Practical utility and limitations are discussed based on results from our preclinical validation, sensitivity analysis and clinical experience from 300 patient plans.

Educational Objectives:

  • To learn about the principles of Monte Carlo secondary dose calculation for patient QA
  • To understand its value and its limitations as part of a general QA framework
  • To define meaningful action levels for Monte Carlo based plan QA
