2020 eContouring for Head and Neck Cancer Case Library

This course will provide education about defining clinical target volumes and their precise delineation in common clinical circumstances. The course will review the prescribed radiation doses recommended for various anatomic sites and clinical scenarios within the head and neck region, define which are the critical organs whose doses should be controlled, and review tradeoffs in doses to clinical targets versus organs at risk and provide a framework to address these tradeoffs. Contouring of clinical target volumes and critical organs at risk will be completed by participants prior to session and will be reviewed by the presenters and discussed.

Target Audience

This program is designed to meet the interest of radiation oncologists, physicists, radiation therapists, and radiation dosimetrists and radiation oncology residents.

Learning Objectives

  • Define clinical target volumes and recommend prescription doses.
  • Outline organs at risk and recommend tolerance doses.
  • Optimize tradeoffs of target versus organ doses.
