Radiation Knowledge (RK) is a global quality improvement platform in radiation medicine. RK was established in 2016 with the focus in the past four years on radiation therapy planning. Eight international radiotherapy planning competitions (eight advanced clinical cases) were successfully organized, then best planning strategies were presented by the best planners for all other planners in the world to learn from.
RK Community started with 400 planners from 55 countries in 2016. Now RK community reached more than 4000 participants from 3500 hospitals located in more than 100 countries around the globe, and the community is still growing.
IAEA Recognizes RK Importance
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) recognizes the importance of RK efforts through allocating a dedicated web page on the IAEA Human Health Campus for RK events and activities. RK was also featured during the IAEA Conference on Advances of Radiation Oncology (ICARO2) in 2017, a proffered paper presentation was delivered during the Education and Training session (90 minute talk), RK IAEA Page. The video of the demo session is available on the IAEA RK page under “Related links”.
RK is a knowledge exchange channel for radiotherapy professionals to share their best practice. Planning was the first stage in radiotherapy workflow and will continue to cover all advanced cases and share make best planning strategies accessible to all planners in the world, and for all treatment planning systems. Other stages in RT (i.e. contouring, QA, treatment delivery, .. etc) will follow the same planning competition’s workflow, and it is coming.
