Biology Guided Radiation Therapy
In this activity, the components of this novel PET/Linac will be introduced to the audience. The highlights of the commissioning and clinical implementation of this linac using IMRT/SBRT mode will be discussed. The unique challenges of BgRT workflow and use cases will be discussed. Delivery verification evidence of the BgRT on static and moving targets will be presented. Periodic quality assurance of this PET subsystem will be discussed.
The activity is designed to meet the interests of practicing radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, medical and clinical physicists, nurses and all other health professionals involved in the field of radiation oncology.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to do the following:
- Identify the technology aspects of PET-linac system.
- Describe the BgRT workflow and unique practical considerations for this technology.
- Evaluate BgRT plan delivery verifications on static and moving targets.
