Information Notice 2001-08, "TREATMENT PLANNING SYSTEM ERRORS RESULT IN
DEATHS OF OVERSEAS RADIATION THERAPY PATIENTS," was issued on June 1,
2001.

This notice was issued to all medical licensees to alert them to a
significant event in Panama that may be applicable to any medical
facility using treatment planning software for therapeutic radiation
treatments.  On May 21, 2001, NRC was notified of an ongoing
investigation in Panama of 28 patients who received radiation therapy
doses up to 100 percent above what was prescribed.  Five patients were
reported to have died at that time, but the causes of their deaths are
under investigation.
