Abstract

The SCALOP trial tested the safety and efficacy of gemcitabine (Gem) versus capecitabine (Cap) based CRT following induction chemotherapy and showed that GemRT was associated with greater toxicity and worse survival1. The evaluation of investigator-delineated volumes and plan assessment from the pre-trial RTQA program using a single benchmark case showed considerable variation in gross tumour volume (GTV) outlining but no major deviations in other aspects of RT planning.
