RBApp stands for RadioBiology Application. RBApp may be useful for learners in radiation oncology, including medical students, residents, physicists, therapists, and oncologists.
RBApp does not require network access for regular use. However, the program may request network permissions because there are web links in the program.
If you find a bug, please don't leave negative comments, but e-mail us instead. We will try our best to fix it! Thanks.
This version contains six features:
-Tissue Tolerance: Gives estimates of normal tissue tolerance for conventional and hypofractionated radiotherapy
-B.E.D. Calculator: Calculates biologic equivalence of different dose/fractionation schemes using the linear quadratic model
-Breast Cancer Recurrence Risk Estimator: Estimates risk of any recurrence after BCT for pN0 patients based on the EBCTCG data
-Rad Onc Wiki: Link to a very useful online evidence-based resource for radiation oncology.
-Prostate Cancer: Risk of pathologic stage based on Gleason, PSA, and Clinical Stage, as well as NCCN recommended workup
-Schonberg Index: A scientifically validated estimate of 5 year and 9 year mortality based on an 11 question survey for elderly patients.
Future versions of this application will include additional features, based on user feedback.

Intended Use Summary
Varian Medical Systems’ linear accelerators are intended to provide stereotactic radiosurgery and precision radiotherapy for lesions, tumors, and conditions anywhere in the body where radiation treatment is indicated.
Radiation treatments may cause side effects that can vary depending on the part of the body being treated. The most frequent ones are typically temporary and may include, but are not limited to, irritation to the respiratory, digestive, urinary or reproductive systems, fatigue, nausea, skin irritation, and hair loss. In some patients, they can be severe. Treatment sessions may vary in complexity and time. Radiation treatment is not appropriate for all cancers. You should discuss the potential for side effects and their severity as well as the benefits of radiation with your doctor to make sure radiation treatment is right for you.
- Commonly prescribed medications
- Oncology ICD9 codes
- Cancer Staging
- DVH normal tissue contraints
- Pertinent clinical calculators (eg. GBM RPA)
This project is intended to be a collaborative effort. Feedback and suggestions from the RadOnc community will directly inform new development efforts.
The materials presented in this app illustrate the consensus reached among cooperative groups and disease site committees. RTOG and authors are not responsible for any use of these guidances by third parties.
L'application a été créée par Jean-Emmanuel Bibault & Pierre Blanchard pour la SFjRO (Société Française des jeunes Radiothérapeutes Oncologues) en partenariat avec la SFRO (Société Française de Radiothérapie Oncologique) et l'AFCOR (Association de Formation Continue en Oncologie Radiothérapie).
Current formulas include:
A-a O2 Gradient
Have Want Formula (FiO2)

If there is a calculation you have questions about or would like to see added, please email us at email@example.com or through our contact form at http://www.rtquickcalc.com. Any feedback is also appreciated and will help us improve our app and ensure that it remains the respiratory therapist's calculator of choice!
Radiation Oncology: A Question-Based Review is organized in topics and sections by site and it covers all the sites and cancer types currently treated with chemotherapy. With detailed questions included on the natural history, epidemiology, diagnosis, staging, and treatment-related adverse effects for each cancer type, emphasis is on evidence-based treatment recommendations.
- First true question-and-answer resource in radiation oncology
- Provides reader with a quick means of self-assessment on topics in modern radiation oncology
- Written by residents on the "front line", but every topic has undergone a comprehensive revision by faculty physicians, most specializing in the particular cancer type or area which they were asked to review
- Follows a logical systems-based approach
Open the app, browse or search (with predictive text) the cancer you are looking for, refer the TNM staging, and bookmark it for quicker access. This app, based on the seventh (latest) edition of ‘ajcc Cancer Staging Manual’, is the simplest TNM tool at your fingertips. Access TNM staging from your phone or tablet. Never forget the ‘TNM staging’ again!
Every radiologist would find this app extremely useful while reporting CTs and MRIs. Whenever you are reporting any malignancy, open this app and go through the content. This will help not to miss any subtle findings which the treating surgeon and oncologist is relying on you. This app is developed by a radiologist to help his colleagues!
Health care professionals also would find this app handy and quick reference guide during multidisciplinary team meetings and discussions.
Its app for every oncologist, radiotherapist, oncosurgeon, histopathologist, trainees, cancer care nurses, and other medical professionals and allied staff involved in cancer care.
The little cost for the app would support the development of the app (to keep it up to date). Part of the revenue will be donated to a cancer charity.
However, please note that this app is not a substitute for ‘ajcc Cancer Staging Manual’. The purpose of the app is not meant to calculate the cancer stage.

Feel free to test the ‘free version’ and consider buying the ‘full version’ to unlock all the cancers. The ‘Full Version’ costs less than or little more than a cup of coffee. This little cost would support the development of the app (to keep it up to date). Part of the revenue will be donated to a cancer charity.
The goal of this bedside tool is to improve patient safety and quality of care by ensuring a higher level of clarity and mutual understanding. We believe that our patients need to understand the reasons for a particular medication, therapy, or procedure. Keeping this in mind, we made it a point to ensure that these translations stayed clear of “textbook” and “slang” Spanish. Instead, we have opted to use a simple and polite Spanish that most people can understand, regardless of country of origin or level of education.
