This year’s study is a collaborative effort between the American Association of Medical Dosimetrists (AAMD), the Radiosurgery Society (RSS), and a new technical consortium who has built a cloud-based system called “ProKnow” that will not only manage the entire study with a cloud-based engine, but is programmed to give you real-time feedback, plan scoring, and interactive analytics.

The goals of this study are 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, and 3) determine, then communicate, “best practices” to share with the community.

Everybody is encouraged to participate in this study, regardless of whether you are currently doing SBRT at your facility.
