Many radiotherapy cases require elevated diligence for imaging

When there’s a near-miss or safety incident (NMSI) with a patient undergoing radiotherapy, and the incident was related to the disease or treatment itself, the lapse often involves imaging. But it’s not imaging per se that raises any particular risk. It’s that NMSIs in radiotherapy are associated with case complexity, which imaging tends to add to, especially when it’s done daily or used to guide the treatment.
