Fig. 1 CONSORT (Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials) diagram of patients with CSM, treated at our department between 2003 and 2017
Fig. 2 Kaplan-Meier plots of progression-free survival (PFS) for all patients with CSM treated with surgery only (A), combined modality of surgery and FSRT (B), and FSRT only (C). Five-year PFS rates were 55.7%, 100.0% and 100.0% for A, B, and C respectively. Ten-year PFS rates were 19.2% and 100.0% for A and B, and not yet reached for group C. B and C improved PFS significantly (p<0.001) compared to A. Conclusion Personalized treatment strategies for CSM patients are essential to control space-occupying or functionally compromising lesions. The additional potential side effect of radiotherapy seems to be justified under the aspect of longer tumor control with low functional risk. In the absence of space-occupying effect, a sole radiotherapeutic concept is reasonably possible.

From the available IVD systems, the Electronic portal imaging device (EPID) has been shown to have great potential for large scale acquisitions of in vivo dosimetry (IVD) data. In recent years, many institutes developed EPID IVD programs with commercial or homemade software. In this work we investigated the critical aspects and the effectiveness of the IVD implementation with a focus on EPID based IVD on an international level. Materials and Methods An ESTRO working group, created a survey containing 44 questions [Fig1] divided in three parts: IVD software characteristics, software implementation and data analysis, and patients results. The survey was sent to the ESTRO mailing list on 14 October 2019 and was closed on 30 November 2019.
