Radiation Oncology Practice Standards and Supplementary Guide
Under the auspices of the Radiation Oncology Tripartite Committee, the Tripartite Standards Working Group was charged with reviewing the Radiation Oncology Practice Standards (ROPS) and Supplementary Guide. The final drafts of these documents have now been completed and the Tripartite Standards Working Group wishes to engage with the membership of RANZCR, ACPSEM and ASMIRT and seeks your feedback on these.

Clinical Advantages of Digital Breast Tomosynthesis in Symptomatic Patients
Digital Breast Tomosynthesis is gaining momentum as a valuable diagnostic tool for breast imaging. In both Australia and New Zealand interest is growing to provide greater access for patients to this imaging modality. The Faculty of Clinical Radiology has developed a draft position statement on the Clinical Advantages of Digital Breast Tomosynthesis in Symptomatic Patients. The document is intended to explain the technology and the relative advantages of DBT for certain clinical presentations to governments and other funders of medical imaging. This document was developed by the FCR Diagnostic Economics Committee with input from breast imaging specialists.
Imaging in Radiation Oncology – A RANZCR Consensus White Paper
Imaging plays a central role in the quality management of cancer from diagnosis to post treatment response assessment and subsequent follow up. The Faculty published the Imaging in Radiation Oncology – a RANZCR Consensus White Paper in 2014, with the aim to identify and document appropriate imaging in the radiotherapeutic management of patients with cancer based on evidence from published literature. The White Paper has recently been reviewed and updated by a panel of experts, comprising radiation oncologists, radiologists, radiation therapists and radiation oncology medical physicists. All updates are highlighted in red.
