Quality assurance is, for radiotherapy, "all those procedures that ensure consistency of the medical prescription and the safe fulfilment of that prescription regards dose to the target volume, together with minimal dose to normal tissue, minimal exposure of personnel and adequate patient monitoring aimed at determining the end result of treatment".

the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) has been another important consideration. SQA works in partnership with centres to ensure that all of its qualifications are subject to rigorous quality assurance and has now drawn up a number of quality assurance principles to maximise the effectiveness of its partnership.

Abstract A comprehensive guide to the problems and techniques of quality assurance in radiotherapy. Prepared by a group of 35 international experts, the book serves as both an introduction to the many factors that influence good radiotherapy practice and a practical guide to the specific tasks involved in quality assurance.
