Adaptive radiotherapy has a potential to improve the therapeutic ratio by modulating radiotherapy planning and delivery according to the changing relation of target volumes with normal tissue. There is great interest in its application in different cancer sites particularly in pelvic tumors (Prostate and Bladder cancers) and Head Neck cancers. While, Image guided Radiotherapy, which is commonly available in increasing number of centers in India, forms the cornerstone of adaptive radiotherapy, routine use of adaptive radiotherapy is limited by the uncertainties in understanding of the workflow and challenges in methods of implementation.
In the fifteenth annual practicum of the Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, we take the privilege of inviting you for a hands-on practical experience in Adaptive Radiotherapy with special focus on pelvic and head neck cancers. Radiation Oncologists, Medical Physicists, and Radiotherapy Technologists are expected to benefit from this workshop. Being a relatively new concept, this provides a good opportunity for delegates to understand the practical aspects of this new and exciting technology from expert international and national faculty.
