The 8° UPMC Annual Radiotherapy Symposium “Autocontouring, real time tumor tracking, plan adaptation, surface guidance – Impact of new technologies on radiotherapy clinical activities. Experiences in comparison”, will take place on December 10th and 11th 2021 in Rome (Palazzo Rospigliosi Conference Center). The event, free and accredited on Agenas for the provision of 4.9 CME credits (for italian participants only), will be available both in Italian and English.
Prof. PierCarlo Gentile, Medical Director at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center San Pietro FBF in Rome, Scientific Coordinator at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center Villa Maria, and Associated Professor at the University of Pittsburgh, is the Scientific Director of the event.
Stereotactic Radiotherapy: the impact of new technologies
The goal of the 2021 Symposium is to analyze the impact of new technologies in support of stereotactic radiotherapy, with a particular focus on the new online adaptive radiotherapy (autocontouring, real time tumor tracking, plan adaptation, surface guidance and new professional skills). All these technologies have significant impacts both on the effectiveness of the treatments and on the patients’ workflow, and consequently on the basic skills necessary for the professionals accompanying them during the treatment. The Symposium aims to bring together various professionals involved in the treatment of radiotherapy patients. Radiation oncologists, medical physicists, radiation therapists, and radiation nurses will discuss the reliability of new systems, how they affect patient care, and their implications in the distribution of workloads.
Thanks to UPMC‘s international stature and vast clinical experience, this event represents a great opportunity to disseminate scientific knowledge on important techniques used to treat oncology patients across Europe and worldwide.
