COURSE ON THE BASIS OF SBRT FOR PHYSICISTS
Modern radiotherapy is increasingly evolving towards a reduction in the number of fractions. Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), or as more recently defined, SABR (stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy), is a radiation therapy approach in which high radiation doses are delivered in few fractions focused on small extracranial tumors with rapid dose fall off outside the target.
In particular, SBRT/SABR is becoming elective therapy in several anatomic districts, both for primitive tumors and for metastatic lesions.
Technological progress both in imaging and in treatment delivery has favored the adoption of this technique.
The main aim of this three-day course is to help medical physicists working in both large and small centers, to learn the proper implementation of effective SBRT treatment practice.
The course is specifically designed for medical physicists, however, Radiation Oncologists, radiation therapists and other professional figures working in RT are welcome to join as well.
