CNS Cancer

22-29 January, 2019

WORKSHOP INTRODUCTION

Glioma contouring is complex for various reasons: first, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences need to be understood; second, there are many radiosensitive organs at risk that are not easy to identify on CT/MRI; and third, healthy brain needs to be spared from radiation as much as possible. This workshop focuses on high and low grade gliomas and will provide you with all the knowledge you need to overcome these three challenges. The course aims to be interactive offering the opportunity of interaction between the participants and experts in the field regarding the best strategy for CNS contouring in daily clinical practice.

TARGET GROUP

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.

WORKSHOP SESSIONS

22 January, 2019 - 18.00-20.00 CET (Central European Time)

WORKSHOP FORMAT

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.
