Next Course: September 11 and 12, 2014
Principles and Practice of Image-Guided Hypofractionated Radiotherapy
The Department of Radiation Oncology at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center present a Stereotactic Radiation Therapy training course, "Principles and Practice of Image Guided Hypofractionated Radiotherapy," targeted at radiation oncologists, medical physicists, radiation therapists/radiographers, and neurosurgeons interested in stereotactic radiotherapy education.
Through attendance at this training program, registrants should obtain knowledge about the practical aspects of hypofrationated radiotherapy, stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), and radiosurgery using an image-guided linear accelerator. Principles of radiation physics and radiobiology, as they apply to hypofractionated, focused, small volume irradiation will be covered. Registrants should be able to evaluate dose plans for lung tumors, spine tumors, and liver tumors, as well as selected other body sites. At the completion of the training program, participants should be able to discuss those issues relevant to dose selection in individual patients and discuss the spectrum of complications after hypofractionated treatment and their management.
The next course is scheduled for September 11 and 12, 2014. Addtional future course dates are listed under the dates and details web tab. - Please contact James Urbanic, MD for more information on enrollment. (336) 713-6560.
