March 13, 2019 -- The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) has published an updated version of its comprehensive radiation oncology safety reference guide.

Last updated in 2012, Safety is No Accident: A Framework for Quality Radiation Oncology and Care now incorporates knowledge gained through the society's Radiation Oncology Incident Learning System (RO-ILS) and Accreditation Program for Excellence (APEx) initiatives, ASTRO said. It also includes enhanced measures for radiation safety, supervision of stereotactic treatments, and certification of dosimetrists and radiation therapists.

The updated document can be downloaded from ASTRO's website.
