Treatment Planning (TP)

MISTIR Flowchart Before participants can start doing TP on the dataset, they first have to perform a dummy run. For a few cases of the dataset, they have to import, plan, export the data and subsequently upload it to the DB.

To perform TP, the participants download the datasets from the database. It is mandatory for each participant to test if any shifts occurred in the structure sets during data import.

To validate the import, screen captures of representative slices are uploaded for verification. The centre then proceeds with TP according to the strict criteria as described in the project protocol. The TP results are exported by the participants in DICOM RT format and uploaded to the DB.

After the data is uploaded, a series of QA procedures is performed to test for protocol violation and data incompatibility.
