An ICTP-IAEA Meeting

The workshop aims to provide participants with specialized training on radiation protection of patients in Image-Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) procedures.
IGRT enables obtaining images of possible changes in margins and contributes considera-bly towards improving the accuracy of the treatment. On the other hand, IGRT delivers an extra dose to the patient outside the tumor target, which increases potential radiation risks. The workshop will support knowledge, practical skills, and competencies in this field. The workshop seeks to target experienced clinical medical physicists from departments performing an IGRT in their clinical practice. Participants are expected to present the sta-tus of the radiation protection program in their departments.

Grants: A limited number of grants are available to support the attendance of selected participants, with priority given to participants from developing countries. There is no registration fee.
