 Course Program 

 

Course Aim:

• Provide knowledge and understanding of physics relevant to modern clinical radiotherapy
• Provide comprehensive overviews of imaging and volume concepts in radiotherapy
• Discuss modern dose delivery techniques, such as IMRT, rotational therapy (VMAT, helical tomotherapy),S(B)RT, IGRT, adaptive therapy (ART),particle therapy and brachytherapy
• Discuss safety issues in lectures on commissioning and QA/QC, radiation protection, in vivo dosimetry and induction of secondary tumours.
• Complimentary to the lectures, this course has clinical case discussions as an important component. The case discussions aim at teaching physics by practical application in treatment planning.
