DETAILED PROGRAMME

 

1.  COMPUTATIONAL METHODS FOR CLINICAL TARGET VOLUME DEFINITION

Chairs: Jan Unkelbach & Ben Heijmen 

Among the three radiotherapy target volume concepts - GTV, CTV, PTV - the definition of the CTV has arguably made the least progress. While GTV definition steadily improves through novel biomedical imaging techniques and the PTV shrinks through image guidance, CTV definition is often considered ...

2.  MULTI-SOURCE DATA FUSION FOR DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEMS IN RADIATION ONCOLOGY: OPPORTUNITIES, METHODOLOGIES, STANDARDIZATIONS AND CLINICAL TRANSLATION

Chairs:  Alberto Traverso & Kathrine Røe Redalen 

Medical images embed valuable quantitative information (e.g. -omics) that can be extracted and used to support treatment decisions and outcome predictions/evaluations in radiation oncology. Additional sources of information collected during clinical procedures ...

3.  IMPLEMENTATION/COMMISSIONING /QA OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNIQUES

Chairs: Wouter van Elmpt & Dirk Verellen

Artificial intelligence (AI) techniques such as advanced machine learning and deep learning are currently finding their way into clinical routine practices. There is still an open question on how properly design, validate ...

4.  CLINICAL APPLICATIONS AND QUALITY ASSURANCE OF SURFACE GUIDED RADIATION

(in collaboration with AAPM)

Chairs: Vania Batista & Hania Al-Hallaq

Surface guided technologies are increasing in use in routine clinical radiotherapy for different purposes (patient positioning, breathing monitoring and/or beam gating). However, no clear guidelines or recommendations are available...‪

5.  PLAN QUALITY ASSESSMENT: DOSE DISTRIBUTION METRICS AND ROBUSTNESS

Chairs: Christian Rønn Hansen & Lamberto Widesott 

Treatment planning the corner stone of radiotherapy and is continually evolving. This presents a challenge to the medical physicist who needs to develop new knowledge...
