Title: 3D Image (CT/MRI) Guided GYN HDR Brachytherapy: What do clinical medical physicists need to know?

Date & Time: Thursday, May 4th at 12:30 pm EDT

 

A new international guideline of ICRU Report #89 for 3D image-guided gynecological brachytherapy has been published as a replacement of old ICRU report #38 which is based on X-ray images and includes the well-known, four reference points of Point A, B, rectal point, and bladder point. In this talk, the new and basic aspects of 3D-Image Guided (IG), GYN HDR that medical physics need to be clinically aware of, will be reviewed and summarized based upon ICRU Report #89 that include;

1) Commissioning intracavitary/interstitial applicators and TPS

2) Commissioning/testing 3D image (CT/MRI) scan protocols ...

Title: Photon Dose Calculation in External Beam Radiotherapy Part I & II

 

Date & Time: Tuesday, April 11th at 1:00 pm ET

The first webinar “Dose Calculation Algorithms in Teleradiotherapy”:

This webinar presents the basic concepts of correction based and model based dose calculation algorithms. For the correction based algorithm a typical parameterisation is introduced and the calculation of the dose distribution in water for arbitrary field sizes is shown. Further correction factors lead then to the dose estimation in the patient. The second part presents the basic approach for deterministic model based dose ...

You are invited to the next FREE WePassed live Webinar in the series! This is a joint webinar, hosted by both WePassed and VisionRT. Surface Guided Radiation Therapy (SGRT) is a new technique that is rapidly becoming a common practice these days. So you get to learn about a new technology AND prepare yourself to answer board questions on this new topic (and given the spread of this technology now, you ARE likely to be questioned on this topic). And it's free. What's not to like? So please join the webinar and come with lots of questions that you want to be answered on this topic.
