Pathways to in-vivo 3D dosimetry measurements for adaptive radiation delivery

26 June 2019 - 27 June 2019

 

CALL FOR PAPERS AND POSTERS

This interdisciplinary workshop will bring together the international research community committed to addressing the challenges that must be overcome in order to make the vision of routine 3D and even 4D in-vivo dosimetry measurements a reality. The workshop will be an opportunity to share knowledge, experiences, best practice and ideas between established experts in dosimeter development and medical physics practitioners in the field as well as early career researchers or those that are joining this exciting and rapidly developing field. It is an opportunity to form new collaborations and access this well connected community.

 

CONFIRMED INVITED SPEAKERS

Prof Ramin Jaberi, Cancer Institute of Tehran, University of Medical Science

Sonja Wegener, University of Würzburg, Department of Radiation Oncology, Germany

Dr Jérôme Benoit, Specialist in Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging and Radiation Oncology, Oncovet, France

Prof David A Bradley, Sunway University (Malaysia) & University of Surrey

Ana Folgueras, Elekta (UK)

 

THEMES

Topical discussion themes will include the following:

* Phantom development (deformable anthropomorphic phantoms and personalised phantoms, use of 3D printing)

* Dosimeter development

* Development of detector placement devices (e.g. 3D printed bolus, nasal, mouth, bladder, and rectal inserts)

* Towards clinical studies

* Applications in Hadron, External Beam and Brachytherapy

* Validations, correction, distortions due to non-tissue equivalence
