Workshop Objectives

Learn the benefits of Real-time prostate HDR Brachytherapy in comparison to CT-based procedures

  • Participants will have the opportunity to interact with experts, see live cases, and practice on treatment planning systems
  • Review of patient selection criteria and applicator selection


Integrated overview on the concept and practice of Real-time image-guided prostate Brachytherapy implants and adaptive planning

  • This workshop addresses all aspects (clinical, technical, implementation and hands-on) necessary for deciding how this treatment method will benefit your clinical practice
  • After observing a live case, participants will focus on implementing the clinical procedure, workflow and equipment into their practice

 

Discuss with the faculty how this treatment modality can be successfully implemented into their clinical environment
