FALCON workshops have been organised at ESTRO congresses since 2010 and have been growing steadily in popularity.

Attending a FALCON workshop offers the opportunity for individual professionals to:

• Validate their contouring practice during live workshops by comparing them with those from experts and other participants
• Learn the indications proposed by the experts that coordinate the workshops
• Discuss with other participants, experts and panellists
• Communicate and use the delineation guidelines in order to further integrate them into daily practice.
