Principles and Practice of Image-Guided Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy and Radiosurgery

The Department of Radiation Oncology at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center present a Stereotactic Radiation Therapy training course, "Principles and Practice of Image Guided Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy and Radiosurgery," 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 October 22 and 23, 2020.
