WePassed is offering another free webinar this month! Be sure to register and join us for the live event. 

Title: Kilovoltage Cone-beam CT for Radiation Therapy

Speaker: Xue Dong, Ph.D

Date/Time: January 29th, 2018 at 5:00 pm EST

Description:

X-ray kilovoltage (kV) cone-beam CT (CBCT) imaging is being increasingly used in various clinical applications, mainly for its large volume coverage and hardware compatibility with open-gantry x-ray imaging system. The use of CBCT improves patient setup accuracy and also opens possibilities of CBCT-based accurate tumor delineation and therapeutic dose calculation. This webinar will cover basics of cone-beam CT physics, the applications of CBCT in image-guided radiotherapy, adaptive planning and dose calculation. A brief overview of artifact corrections in CBCT will also be presented.
