#23: The standard setters had to draw the line somewhere for the list of volumes and, since seminal vesicles are very rarely the primary target volume, they were omitted. That is why we have always (ROADS -> FORDS -> STORE) had a code 98. For the benefit of future local4 users of the data it would be a good idea to document treatment of seminal vesicles in the radiation comments field.

 

Field #23 Strike through Volume 98 Other, change to 64 Prostate Whole

This has been clarified with the experts. Registrars should use the code as instructed in the STORE 2021 manual and code data item for PTV for prostate and SMV to code 64 . #
