Purpose: To quantify the change resource utilization in radiotherapy in the context of advancing technologies and techniques over the last decade.
Methods And Materials: Prospectively, the time to complete radiotherapy workflow tasks was captured between January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020. The institutional task workflows are specific to each technique and broadly organized into four categories: 3D conformal radiotherapy (3DCRT), IMRT, VMAT simple, and VMAT complex. Read More
