Radiation Oncology Grand Rounds – Lessons Learned from Three Years of Proton Treatments

Miami, FL US
October 8, 2018

Monte Carlo (MC) methods are recognized as the gold-standard for dose calculation, however they have not replaced analytical methods up to now due to their lengthy calculation times. GPU-based applications allow MC dose calculations to be performed on time scales comparable to conventional analytical algorithms. During this conference Dr. Kruse will teach participants about robust optimization strategies.  Participants will also be able to see examples of anatomic variation impacting the delivered dose.

Target Audience

Radiation Oncologists, Medical Oncologists, Oncology Surgeons and Radiologists

NOTE: Due to limited space, this conference is open to Baptist Health affiliated Medical Staff and Clinical Employees.

Learning Objectives

  • List robust optimization strategies and describe treatment strategies.
  • Describe examples of anatomic variation impacting delivered dose.
  • Explain monte carlo validation and variable RBE models.
