Radiotherapy dose fractionation, third edition

Date of next review: 

Radiotherapy Dose Fractionation Third Edition aims to recommend evidence-based radiotherapy treatment regimens and fractionation schedules and to present acceptable treatment options ranked according to the level of evidence available. 

The first edition of Radiotherapy Dose Fractionation presented guidelines derived from a rigorous appraisal of the literature published by June 2006. In December 2016 a second edition was published to reflect changes in practice which had evolved in the previous decade.

The RCR’s Clinical Oncology Professional Support and Standards Board review all RCR publications on a regular basis to ensure they remain up to date. This third edition has therefore been produced to take account of further published evidence.

This third edition replaces the previous second edition which has now been withdrawn.

For ease of use, the document can be downloaded by chapter or as a single pdf.
