Automation in Treatment Planning – A Promising Future Already Upon Us

Tuesday 13 October 2015, 15.30 GMT/ 10.30 EST

 

The current reality for radiation oncology departments all around the world is a push to do more with less, while maintaining high quality plans for patients. Vendors of treatment planning software are in a position to help, with creation of tools to streamline and automate many of the tedious tasks as well as improve utilization of new and creative plan improvement tools. It is the purpose of this talk to explore some of the automation tools in several treatment planning systems with a focus on those built into the RayStation TPS, produced by RaySearch Laboratories; to include use of protocols, templates and scripting, automatic breast planning, Fallback Planning, Multi-Criteria Optimization, Reduce Organ at Risk and Plan Exploration. Finally, we will look to the future and what automation means to the dosimetrists or physicists clinically and professionally.

Electronic Recordkeeping In Radiation Oncology

Wednesday 23 September 2015, 15.00 GMT/ 10.00 EST

 

Recordkeeping for purposes of regulatory compliance in the modern radiation oncology environment is largely a paper driven process. Many software and hardware solutions are available from vendors to solve individual issues relating to the collection and processing of QA data, but few, if any, can collect, process and present the results of this data in a cohesive way. In this presentation, James P. Nunn, Senior Medical Physicist at Lewis Gale Regional Cancer Center, will show how electronic recordkeeping is readily and routinely used in the setting of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine service lines, but strangely absent in the Oncology service line.
