We’d like to invite you to attend our upcoming FREE webinar:

 

Title: Intra-Operative Radiation Therapy (IORT)

Speaker: Michael Lometti, Msc, DABR Medical Physicist

Date/Time: Monday, April 15th at 1 pm EDT

Intra-Operative Radiation Therapy (IORT) is the use of radiation therapy in the operating room during a surgical procedure.  IORT allows for delivery of high radiation doses to a tumor while sparing skin and nearby organs at risk. The Mobetron, made by IntraOp Medical, Sunnyvale, California, is designed specifically to deliver IORT in an unshielded operating room.  This webinar will give an overview of IORT and the Mobetron and discuss the role of the physicist in implementing an IORT program, acquiring, accepting and commissioning the Mobetron and clinical use of the Mobetron.

Bio: Michael Lometti, Msc, DABR, Medical Physicist at the Department of Radiation Oncology, University of California San Francisco. Michael Lometti received his Master of Science in Physics at San Francisco State University in 2004. He specializes in therapeutic medical physics and is board certified by the American Board of Radiology. Mike has worked as a physicist in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of California San Francisco since 2004. As a Hospital Physicist, Mike’s primary areas of responsibility have been Intra-Operative Radiation Therapy (Mobetron & Intrabeam), HDR brachytherapy, special procedures (PPI, St-90 eye applicators, I-125 eye plaques, I-125 & Cs-131 seed implants in the brain and P-32 spinal plaques), Cyberknife and machine QA. He has commissioned four Mobetrons and provided physics support to over 500 IORT’s.
