As the patient safety agenda continues to shine the spotlight on the number of errors in clinical medicine, most radiotherapy departments can point to excellent quality assurance and incident reporting systems as evidence that we are among the safest disciplines. QA is especially important in the face of increasing physics accuracy and computational power which together mean we can deliver known doses of radiation to our target volumes and away from critical structures with millimetre accuracy. With increasingly precise radiation delivery it becomes even more important that we define our targets accurately.
