There are many recent advances in image-guided radiotherapy, some of it is being established such KV CBCT and some are being introduced to the such as MR or PET and some are in research phase such as optics and acoustic technologies including the introduction of new treatment devices that allow better patient setup and in vivo monitoring. It is important to stay informed of these new treatment and imaging technologies.
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 live activity, attendees should be able to do the following:
1. Identify the different approaches to image-guided radiation therapy
2. Discuss the impact of these technologies on the expected delivered dose distributions
3. Examine how conventional and emerging technologies will improve image-guided radiotherapy and how this could fit into your clinical practice
