A Radiotherapy Treatment Course is a set of Fractions for an individual PATIENT which have been planned and prescribed as a whole. It should be noted that the following all constitute one course of treatment:
- Set of Fractions planned and prescribed as a whole with a period of no treatment during them (split course)
Similarly if a PATIENT has two primary lesions of the same disease, eg two rodent ulcers, the treatment of these comprises two primary courses, unless the lesions are in such close proximity that they are to be treated together.
If during a course of treatment, a PATIENT starts a further course, the second course should be separately identified.
