RSSearch Registry-Long Term Study of Use of SRS/SBRT to Treat Tumors and Other Functional Diseases
The Registry is designed to help SRS/SBRT users to understand utilization of and key
treatment outcomes for these treatment approaches. Some of the objectives include:
Allow participants to record information about usage of SRS/SBRT in everyday practice,
including patient characteristics and disease information, treatment plans and outcomes
Provide participants with ready access to data for publication of their own experience and
as a tool for establishing collaborations with other participating sites Facilitate quality
improvement efforts for individual treatment providers Understand the effectiveness of
different treatment plans for different types of lesions, diseases and treatments
The Registry tracks select outcomes for each condition treated by SRS/SBRT (for example, PSA
for prostate cancer); the Registry also provides individual participants the ability to add
additional outcomes for each and any condition of specific interest to their institutions.
The Registry is hosted by Advertek, Inc who is an independent vendor of electronic
registries; they are responsible for HIPAA compliance, including all security mechanisms.
Patients will be enrolled prospectively. Some retrospective patient data is likely to be
included in order to capture both short and longer term outcomes data.
