MRI in radiotherapy course

March 9 - March 12

€600

MRI in radiotherapy for radiation oncologists, medical physicists and RTTs

MRI in radiotherapy is a growing field due to the introduction of MRI in the simulation phase for conventional treatments and MRI guided treatment delivery on MR-Linacs. Many departments of radiotherapy are currently introducing or extending the use of MRI for delineation of target volumes and organs at risk. Additionally, treatment monitoring during or after radiotherapy is emerging. For the implementation process, understanding of MR physics is useful and practical.

Course content

In radiotherapy the use of MRI is increasing and MR guided treatments are emerging. Due to this trend in radiation oncology it has become necessary to learn about implementation, interpretation and workflow of MRI in radiotherapy for simulation.

This international course is intended for radiation oncologists, radiologists, residents, medical physicists, and radiation therapists who want to learn about the application of MRI, specifically for radiotherapy. The course will cover lectures on: theoretical background on how MRI images are acquired (basic MRI physics), some challenges in implementing it (quality assurance, safety and integration in clinical workflow) and will highlight a wide range of clinical applications in various tumor sites.

Besides the lectures, there will be optional practical sessions.

More information on the practical sessions and details about the course can be found on the website.
