IHE Radiation Oncology addresses information sharing, workflow, and patient care in radiation oncology.
For an overview of submitting a Use Case for Radiation Oncology, please refer to this page.
Please read the Profile_Proposal_Process to understand the process for specifying, prioritizing and selecting profiles. Edit the following table to include new pages (using the above format) and use the Brief_Proposal_Template to create new Use Cases. The Detailed_Proposal_Template can be used later to provide full details. A high level Radiotherapy Process map provides a context for developing Use cases.
