Falcon Workshop - Prostate Cancer SBRT

Prostate cancer is commonly treated with primary radiation therapy (RT), which results in similar long-term oncological outcomes as radical prostatectomy but with fewer patient-reported side-effects. Thanks to innovations in radiation techniques, at least 4 randomized trials could establish “moderate” hypofractionation (delivering 2.5-3.0 Gy per fraction over 4-5 weeks) as a new standard. Recently, “extreme” hypofractionation, typically delivering 4 to 5 fractions of 7 – 8 Gy once daily or every other day, was recognized as a valid alternative in selected patients. Arguably, such SBRT treatments will form the future of prostate cancer radiation therapy. First, we will discuss the current level of evidence and current indications, especially focusing on intermediate- and high-risk prostate cancer. Secondly, we will discuss differences in delineation both regarding target volumes (especially regarding the seminal vesicles) as well as organs at risk (OAR) and the use of margins. We will conclude with planning and image-guided delivery (fiducial markers, rectal spacers etcetera). This will be done in a very interactive way, with practical home-work sessions and individual feedback.

These online delineation workshops are aimed at junior clinical or radiation oncologists who want to improve their contouring skills or at more senior specialists who want to refresh and validate their knowledge and skills in this field.

Before the workshop, pre-workshop homework will be sent out that needs to be complete before the workshop. This will be accompanied with prerecorded instructions how to use Falcon Educase and how to logon for the first session with WebEx. This will be sent one week before the first workshop lesson. On the first online lesson the faculty members will give a guideline presentation, and will review and comment your pre-workshop contours. Participants are requested to contour the case the second time based on the taught guidelines. On the second online lesson the faculty members will compare the first and the second submitted contours to the reference contours and generally comment the delineations.


Application for CME recognition will be submitted to the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME), an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS). EACCME credits are recognised by the American Medical Association towards the Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA). Information on the status of the applications can be obtained from the ESTRO office.
