Quality assurance (QA) in radiation oncology involves all checks and processes that ensure that radiotherapy is delivered in an optimal and intended manner. QA is essential for the accurate delivery of brachytherapy and external beam radiotherapy in patients diagnosed with gynecologic malignancies. Inadequate QA can adversely impact clinical outcomes and reduce the reliability of clinical trials. This review highlights the importance of QA in gynecologic radiation oncology and explores the pertinent issues related to its implementation.
