Abstract

SCALOP, a randomized Phase II multicenter trial, compared gemcitabine-chemoradiation (CRT) and capecitabine-CRT following induction chemotherapy in locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC); 74 patients were randomized to a CRT arm. A prospective RTTQA program to ensure protocol compliance and high quality RT delivery involved: (1) RT trial protocol including radiologist outlined example images; (2) Centrally reviewed benchmark case for outlining and planning; (3) Real time, on-trial assessment of RT planning compliance for every patient using a trial specific PAF, to allow all planning data to be compared against protocol standards.
