RTQA: Sensitivity Assessment System to Improve Quality in Radiation Oncology Treatment (SEAFARER)

The SEAFARER project enables clinical radiation therapy departments to assess the performance of their Patient Specific Quality Assurance (PSQA) process.

PSQA, alongside other quality assurance measures, plays an important role in delivering safe radiation therapy. PSQA tends to be resource intensive, and it has been shown to not always identify problems with treatment plans (Kry et al 2014).

Through simulation of realistic and clinically relevant treatment delivery errors, the SEAFARER project allows departments to test the sensitivity of their PSQA process. Following a successful international pilot for a stereotactic spine case (Lehmann et al 2022) the project is now being upgraded and expanded to other treatment sites.
