This 3 day course is designed to help clinicians, physicists and radiographers develop programmes for the implementation of image guided radiotherapy.
The course has been awarded 19 RCR Category I CPD credits under The Royal College of Radiologists CPD scheme.
The curriculum covers many practical aspects and includes hands - on experience of volume and OAR localisation and definition, contouring, planning techniques, immobilization and patient set up image verification. Plus guidance for developing protocols for outlining, and sessions on QA and imaging, covering pre-treatment and on treatment procedures - from the TPS to the linac and patient.
We recommend a team of oncologist, physicist and radiographer from the same centre attend together. Included in the cost of the course is a set of lecture notes, a CD of the presentations, lunches, refreshments and a course evening meal.
