Course overview

This course is designed to help clinicians, physicists and radiographers to develop programmes for the clinical implementation of image guided radiotherapy. The course has been awarded 19 RCR Category I CPD credits under The Royal College of Radiologists CPD scheme. In 2017 it received 20 CPD credit- points from The European Federation of Organisations for Medical Physics.

The curriculum covers many practical aspects and includes hands-on practical sessions, image matching, QA and dosimetry. It is recommended that a team of oncologist, physicist and radiographer from the same centre attend together. 

The course is for three days and included in the cost are a set of lecture notes, a CD of the presentations, lunches, refreshments, cheese and wine and a course dinner on the evening of Thursday 8 February 2018.

Day one: Introduces multi-modality and functional imaging for the delivery of complex radiotherapy, as well as an introduction to the principles of IGRT. 

Day two: Lectures on head and neck clinical trials, breast IMRT and radiobiological considerations in IMRT including hypofractionation will start the day. 

Day three: Practical hands-on sessions on contouring supervised by oncologists and hands-on IGRT planning will be included.
