Falcon 2024 Online Course - Cervix Cancer EBRT

The Gynaecological Online EBRT Contouring Workshop is a comprehensive and case-based course offering an interactive learning experience with the opportunity to discuss with experts.

This workshop aims to help participants acquire and refresh their contouring skills while learning the guidelines and best practices based on the latest evidence and research on cervical cancer.

The subjects covered during this workshop include interpretation of MRI-, CT- and PET/CT - scans, guidelines for target and OAR contouring, rational and concepts for volume margin setup,  dose and fractionation considerations, and the current clinical evidence.

Using the FALCON-EduCase contouring tool, participants will delineate a gynaecological pre-operative case and the experts will review participants' contours online while comparing them to expert contours. The participants' will leave the course with practical evidence based knowledge that can be immediately applied to their clinical practice.

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 Zoom. 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.
