Radiological Physics Center

The mission of the Radiological Physics Center (RPC) is to assure NCI and the Cooperative Groups that institutions participating in clinical trials deliver prescribed radiation doses that are clinically comparable and consistent.

This mission is accomplished by assessing the institution's radiotherapy programs, helping the institutions implement remedial actions, assisting the study groups in developing protocols and QA procedures, and informing the community of our findings.

Famous quotes containing the words center and/or physics:

    Actually being married seemed so crowded with unspoken rules and odd secrets and unfathomable responsibilities that it had no more occurred to her to imagine being married herself than it had to imagine driving a motorcycle or having a job. She had, however, thought about being a bride, which had more to do with being the center of attention and looking inexplicably, temporarily beautiful than it did with sharing a double bed with someone with hairy legs and a drawer full of boxer shorts.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    The labor we delight in physics pain.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
