Abbreviation: ROO

General Information
The Radiation Oncology Ontology (ROO) aims to cover the radiation oncology domain with a strong focus on re-using existing ontologies. ROO models terms including: uniform and non-uniform margins; ROI target volumes and organs-at-risk; dose-volume histogram parameters (Dx, Vx, MLD, etc.); and on-line / off-line setup protocols.

Implementing Databases (2)
The CancerData site is an effort of the Medical Informatics and Knowledge Engineering team (MIKE for short) of Maastro Clinic, Maastricht, The Netherlands. It offers a central, online repository for the sustained storage of clinical protocols, publications and research datasets. The data that are offered can vary from documents, spreadsheets to (bio-)medical images and treatment simulations. CancerData is a registered member of DataCite, which is an international consortium and member of the International DOI Foundation. Via DataCite, we have the ability to offer persistent identifiers to the datasets via the registration of Digital Object Identifiers (DOI).

Dutch ColoRectal Audit - Radiotherapy
The Dutch ColoRectal Audit - Radiotherapy is the national clinical quality of care registry for radiotherapy treatment of colorectal carcinoma. This registry contains information about target areas, dose volumes histograms and organs at risk.The registry is used by a growing number of Radiotherapy centres to store information for quality indicators, benchmarking and scientific research.
