Winter School - 1 to 4 February 2021

Background

Background

This Winter School will discuss recent and future advancements in SBRT. Since its wide clinical adoption in the last decade, SBRT has seen a lot of changes: from the development of dedicated delivery platforms to advancements in immobilization, setup verification, motion management, gating, and intra-fraction imaging. Recently, with the advent of adaptive RT and MR-guidance, the field is witnessing rapid changes that can lead to wider use of SBRT in previously untreatable sites and an associated increase in complexity for the teams involved.
