IROCK Registry Sites

iRock Map Jan 2024 update.png

IROCK was established in 2014 with 8 institutions involved in developing a consensus statement on SABR for primary RCC; the first publication from the consortium. Additional investigators joined IROCK in the intervening years, following calls for expression of interest. These investigators and sites have worked together on subsequent publications utilising data from the pooled retrospective cohort; establishing a prospective registry is the next phase of IROCK’s research.


IROCK is in the process of obtaining the necessary approvals at the sites of our Steering Committee members. The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre (in Mebourne, Australia) hosts the IROCK Registry database and is coordinating the project. To manage the legal requirements across multiple jurisdictions, we began the process of site activation in Australia and North America. We were recently able to start contracting with European sites, and hope to be able to add other jurisdictions in the near future.

Interested in being an IROCK Registry site?

We would be very interested to hear from physicians keen to join the IROCK Registry effort as a contributing site. As a general guide, departments with experience of treating more than 10 cases of RCC with SABR per annum are suitable to contribute data to the IROCK registry. 

Please contact the registry coordinator via the Contact Us page if you would like to register your interest in becoming an IROCK site, or for more information.
