2017 Workshop: Gynecological Cancer Treatment Using Image-Guided Adaptive Brachytherapy

You are invited to attend an interactive clinical workshop on image-guided adaptive brachytherapy for cervical cancer. Participants obtain comprehensive practical insight into the clinical workflow of 3-D image-guided adaptive brachytherapy for gynecologic cancer. Practical issues, constraints and solutions each participant is currently handling at their institution is discussed with emphasis on the practical aspects of implementing 3-D image-based brachytherapy for treating cervical cancers.

 

December 4-5, 2017
Florida Hospital Cancer Institute & Medical Plaza
