About the event

February has always been the best month to take part in SGRTuesdays, our ever-popular free webinar series, featuring expert users sharing their knowledge of Surface Guided Radiation Therapy.

The combination of it being the bleakest month of the year, plus the least-fun day of the week, gives you the perfect excuse to schedule a little you-time in your day – practical professional development, delivered in a short and accessible format.

So join us online, every Tuesday in February, and find out more about how SGRT can benefit your clinical practice at every stage of the RT workflow (Sim-Plan-Treat-Dose) and also for every patient and every fraction.

CE credits are available*


LEARNING OBJECTIVES

1. Understand how SGRT can be applied across different clinical treatment sites and understand the benefits to these types of treatments.

2. Learn how to expand clinical utilization of SGRT and realise the potential for this technology across multiple treatment sites, including DIBH, SRS, H&N and metastatic treatments.

3. Realise the potential positive impact using SGRT can have on the patients undergoing Radiation treatment.

4. Hear how SGRT can improve accuracy, reduce imaging and improve treatment times.

5. Find out how SGRT can be used to visualize the dose on the patient during Radiation Therapy and what impact this may have in improving the safety of the treatments.
