White Papers


The successful delivery of radiation treatment involves the careful efforts of everyone on the radiation oncology team.  

As a part of its Target Safely campaign, ASTRO creates quality assurance and safety white papers, which are an effort to investigate and develop modern risk-based and process-focused quality assurance methods for radiotherapy treatment. These white papers provide an opportunity to consolidate the abundant available guidance and focus on preventing catastrophic failures.

In addition, ASTRO supported the creation of Quantitative Analyses of Normal Tissues Effects in the Clinic (QUANTEC) reviews in association with the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM). This series of papers offers focused summaries of the dose/volume/outcome data for many of the organs potentially impacted by radiation treatment and gives physicians and treatment planners excellent resources to assist in determining acceptable dose/volume constraints.
