EFRS definition of radiotherapy

Radiographers are responsible for the preparation and performance of safe and accurate
high-energy radiation treatments, using a wide range of sophisticated irradiation and imaging equipment and techniques, this includes:

  • optimising the patient position and production of individual immobilisation as required
  • using simulation to collect data/ information to identify the target volume and organsat risk using appropriate imaging modalities
  • treatment planning to achieve an optimal dose distribution in the target volume andorgans at risk
  • verification of the treatment plan, patient set-up and daily verification of patient positioning
  • irradiation of the target volume
