These reports can be found at: The Report is a companion volume to IPEM Report 81 Physics Aspects of Quality Control in Radiotherapy and will be of particular interest to Radiotherapy Clinical Scientists, Clinical Technologists and Managers involved in the planning, acceptance testing and commissioning of the modern linear accelerator.

Vascular Laboratory Practice Part 5. Mathematical Techniques in Nuclear Medicine. The first of these is published in this issue of PMB, and covers to use of flattening-filter free FFF beams in radiotherapy Budgell et al Medical and Dental Guidance Notes. We hope this report will aid their work. In parallel to these reports and codes of practice, IPEM is now launching a complementary series of short topical reports.

Later chapters consider specific components of the modern linear accelerator including systems for multileaf collimation, electronic portal imaging, dynamic wedging, record and verify, intensity modulation and stereotaxis.

Current guidance covers kilovoltage and megavoltage photons, tomotherapy, electrons and high-dose-rate brachytherapy systems Lillicrap et alKlevenhagen et alThwaites et alIpme et alBidmead et alThomas et al Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine IPEM’s aim is to promote the advancement of physics and engineering applied to medicine and replrt for the public benefit. PMB welcomes the opportunity to publish IPEM codes of practice and topical reports, subject to the usual rigorous peer-review process and given the global reach of the journal, the requirement that the international context is addressed.


Many departments are looking to introduce these ipek, mainly because of their higher dose rates and potential ease of modelling in the treatment planning system.
