Liver IG/SBRT Education Course – March 3-5, 2022
Course Leaders: Dr. Aisling Barry, MD & Dr. Laura Dawson, MD
Guest Faculty: Dr. Cihan Gani, MD – University of Tuebingen

Description: Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) has been proven to be an effective tool in the management of both primary liver cancer (HCC) and metastatic liver lesions. The Liver IG/SBRT course is a 2.5 day immersive educational program where experts will guide participants through the relevant clinical, pathologic, radiobiological, oncologic and technological principles that guide the assessment, decision-making and treatment of patients diagnosed with HCC or metastatic liver disease using a combination of lectures, discussions and hands on experiences.

**The course is currently planned for an “in person” delivery.  We encourage interested participants to refrain from making travels plans until a final decision made regarding the viability of an in person event.

Audience: All radiation medicine professionals
Early-bird Deadline: January 14, 2022
Full Registration Fee: $2500

On-Site Course Descriptions

Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)

Our IGRT/SBRT course offerings continue to evolve in response to changing technology, applications, and evidence-based practice. We offer foundations as well as disease site-specific courses and continue to develop new courses each year, including: Liver SBRT, Lung SBRT, Head and Neck IM/IGRT, Paraspinal SBRT, CNS, SBRT for Oligometastases, and Sarcoma coming this fall 2017. These more focused courses still cover the fundamental principles of IGRT/SBRT, but do so within the unique context of their particular disease site.

Accelerator Technology (ATec)

The ATec Education Course is developed to address the training needs of physics staff responsible for the maintenance of medical accelerators. The emphasis of the course is on the practical aspects of maintaining Linacs, through a combination of lectures and hands-on labs.

Quality & Safety in Radiation Therapy (QSRT)

This course aims to expose learners to the overarching principles that comprise a program-wide approach to quality and safety and proposes a variety of tools and approaches that learners immediately experience to help advance their own practice along the quality continuum and provide insights to be brought back to their local program.

Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)

Over the past decade, Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) has emerged as the standard of treatment for the delivery of the safest and most effective radiation therapy. It exploits technologies that minimize treatment side effects, while giving definitive radiation doses to diseased tissue. The course was developed to share a unique interprofessional approach to patient treatment and program development to give professionals an opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills in this area.
