educe errors and variability, and workflow monitoring to evaluate system status, collecting errors and near misses as they occur to improve organizational learning. Also it would facilitate record keeping, auditing, and assurance of hospital, state, and federal compliance. The system is also designed to enhance safety and quality for each individual patient by incorporating automated alerts and warnings and by allowing users to access the data and check patient charts at any step of a procedure in ways that otherwise would not necessarily be available.

"Infrastucture such as QAIS should help institutions and private clinics to understand the treatment practices, determine best practice, benchmark practices and ultimately standardize health care treatment in radiation therapy," Rangaraj adds. "We are in a verge of a QA revolution in radiation oncology and QAIS is a step in the right direction."

The presentation " An Infrastructure Towards Better and Safer Radiation Therapy- Quality Assurance Information System (QAIS)" by D Rangaraj, K Moore, L Santanam, S Yaddanapudi, D Yang, S Goddu, R Brame, S Mutic, and D Low will be at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 18, 2010 in the Exhibit Hall on Level One of the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

PHILADELPHIA, PA (July 18, 2010) -- Visualization of tumors can guide radiation therapy in a specific and effective manner, but the methods used to image and direct therapy typically themselves involve radiation. This is particularly a concern in pediatric patients, because they are far more susceptible than adults to radiation-induced late effects such as growth retardation and second malignancies.
