This course is designed to help clinicians, physicists and radiographers to develop comprehensive programmes for the clinical 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 practical sessions, image matching, QA and dosimetry. It is recommended that a team of oncologist, physicist and radiographer from the same centre attend together.
The course is for three days and included in the cost are a set of lecture notes, a digital copy of the actual presentations, lunches, refreshments, cheese and wine and a course dinner on the evening of Thursday 7 February 2019.
Day one: Introduces multi-modality and functional imaging for the delivery of complex radiotherapy, discusses future developments as well as an introduction to the principles of IGRT, and clinical site implementation.
Day two: Lectures on head and neck, breast, prostate and lung clinical trials, SABR and image verification. FFF and small field dosimetry and QA with SABR.
Day three: Practical hands-on sessions on the use of Image Guidance protocols, QA, Dosimetry, and a journey through the patient pathway.
