Medical physics Workshop on IGRT workflows – From Contouring to Treatment

Online phase 15.10. – 13.11.2018

During the online phase participants will get access to ca. 8 – 10 recorded video lectures of max 45 min. each that explain and repeat the basics for example different PTV concepts for IMRT irradiation or TPS commissioning. You can listen to the video lectures during the online phase whenever it suits you best. The slides of each lecture are also available as PDF file for downloading. Furthermore, you will be asked to give feedback in an online survey which topics should be discussed in the attendance phase in more details.
