Advanced Technologies Course is organized by European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) and will be held from Nov 03 - 06, 2019 at Shenzhen, Guangdong, China. Target Group : The course is aimed at radiation oncologists, radiation physicists and radiation therapists (RTTs) who wish to participate in advanced technologies such as IMRT, IGRT and Adaptive Radiotherapy (ART) in their department. Some experience in the field of conformal therapy, target delineation and treatment planning is a prerequisite. Making advanced technologies work is a team effort therefore simultaneous participation of the above-mentioned three disciplines from one team is strongly recommended. Description : The aim of the course is to provide: • Understanding of the principles and background of IMRT, IGRT and ART • Knowledge on the impact of various geometrical uncertainties and where they can be minimised • Knowledge of QA of IMRT, IGRT and ART • An overview of available techniques, being able to choose between techniques and knowledge of their limitations • Planar and 3D in room imaging • Workflow and efficiency at the department for implementation of IMRT, IGRT and ART • Clinical rationale, limitations and evidence for advanced technologies • Knowledge of inverse treatment planning optimisation, biological optimisation and dose painting. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
