  • Virtual workshop session of two hours

FALCON

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 workshops by comparing them with those from experts and other participants

  • Learn the guidelines and best practices proposed by the experts

  • Discuss with experts and panellists

  • Communicate and use the delineation guidelines to further integrate them into your daily practice.
