Image-guided Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy in Gynaecological Cancer: Focus on Mri Based Adaptive Brachytherapy is organized by European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) and will be held from Oct 12 - 16, 2019 at Grand Hotel Napoca, Cluj-Napoca, Cluj, Romania. Target Audience: The course is aimed at radiation and gynaecology oncologists, medical physicists and radiation therapists (RTTs) involved in gynaecological tumour treatments, interested in the implementation of EBRT and brachytherapy image guidance. Course participants should have specific interest in and/or initial experience with implementation of advanced MRI based brachytherapy and advanced EBRT techniques (IMRT/IGRT). The course offers both a “General track” and an “Experienced track” to meet different levels of clinical experience. Prerequisites: • Depending whether you opt for the general or experienced track, slightly different prerequisites will apply. These are detailed above. • Two different tracks will be offered which are adapted to different levels of clinical experience among participants: “General track” and “Experienced track” (related to brachytherapy). • The “General track” has a more elaborate educational component and will include all introductory lectures into image guided brachytherapy such as brachytherapy techniques, target contouring, and ICRU-GEC-ESTRO recommendations. • The “Experienced track” will feature break-out sessions where participants present patient cases on power point (diagnostic work-up, EBRT target contouring and treatment planning as well as brachytherapy application, target contouring and treatment). The break-out sessions will be supervised by faculty members (MDs and physicists), so that individual feed-back on treatment practice can be obtained. The course aims to: • Teach about principles of 3D image-based EBRT and brachytherapy including techniques and treatment planning • Provide understanding of commissioning, quality assurance, principles of planning, plan evaluation and reporting of 2D and 3D brachytherapy in cervical cancer • Introduce 3D image-based target concepts of GTV, CTV and PTV including both EBRT and brachytherapy in cervical cancer • Enable practical implementation of 3D techniques in EBRT and brachytherapy in cervical cancer • Provide an overview on the radiation therapy (external radiation and brachytherapy) in cervical cancer. • Enhance the practical implemention and logistics in the existing environment. • Provide further roadmap and steps of intervention to improve the existing standards.
