Find out how to implement or improve the use of IMRT/VMAT and other highly conformal techniques in the clinic, while taking account of well-known clinical and technical issues, as well as the latest developments in this radiotherapy field.
This course is for trainees in radiation oncology and physics. It covers the application of anatomical knowledge in daily clinical practice, the optimal imaging requirements for treatment planning and delivery for a wide variety of tumours, how to determine adequate margins, and how to initiate an IGRT protocol.
Get a clear understanding of up-to-date evidence, open questions not covered by evidence, as well as the practical tools to evaluate your own evidence and research.
The course teaches to design treatment strategies and apply modern principles of target volume definition, fractionation and treatment techniques for radiation therapy in the multimodality treatment of haematological malignancies.
Safety management is deeply embedded in the culture of radiation therapy, in the daily attitude of staff members, within the team and also with the patients. What exactly is the level of risk? How can we measure it? How can we manage patient safety in daily radiotherapy? These are the main topics of this course.
Low dose rate or high dose rate brachytherapy? What’s the difference and how do you do it? Which treatment for prostate cancer is best and in what circumstances? This course covers a range of topics from patient selection, to implant and planning technique, to new developments in the field.
