|Practical dosimetry for Radiotherapy (Teletherapy and/or Brachytherapy)
||20 juni 2023
A practical and comprehensive course on dosimetry in radiotherapy. Quality assurance is one of the foundations of radiotherapy practice. Due to a growing complexity of medical irradiation equipment, performing dosimetry is not always trivial. Therefore knowledge and expertise in dosimetry is of major importance to medical physics engineers and medical physicists. Each course program includes a practical assignment.
The 4 general modules of the course consists of dosimetrical concepts, translated to a practical methodology for using absolute dosimetry in daily practice and dealing with uncertainties.
Two specific modules deal with dosimetry in teletherapy and two more with dosimetry in brachytherapy.
The course has been developed at VSL in cooperation with medical physicists and engineers in the field of radiotherapy and can be a part of the professional training of medical physicists, dosimetrists, and medical physics engineers.
