ARC EDGE

Treatment Planning Training for Physicists, Dosimetrists, and Radiation Oncologists

The Course:

The course content is listed below.  A progressive review prefaces each body site.  A step-by-step video walks you through each body site.  

Each body site will cover:

  • Immobilization
  • Use of Contrast
  • Imaging
  • Simulation
  • Target Identification
  • Critical Structure Contouring
  • Planning Techniques -- 3D, IMRT, VMAT, 
    Rotational IMRT, Helical IMRT
  • Plan Review Techniques
  • IGRT Introduction
  • Treatment Delivery 
  • Treatment Review

 

It is not button pushing.  We describe and explain the purpose and functionality of the planning process.  This is what is important.  It really does not matter what vendor or version of software you use for planning, the concepts are 95% based on understanding the steps.  

Data sets are made available so you can run plans and score them after you have learned the fundamentals and advanced planning techniques.  Imagine having your own Plan Challeges to run, on your own time, without the worry of competing against the rest of the world.

You will be provided a ProKnow log in and password so that these plans can be uploaded and scored.  You can continue to practice on these plans to continue to improve your planning skills.  

Plan review and benchmarking skills will be addressed.
