You are invited to join us for the next free webinar hosted by WePassed! 

Title: An introduction on MRI-based treatment planning

Speaker: Tonghe Wang, PhD 

Date/Time: Wednesday, January 29th at 6pm EDT

About the webinar: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-only radiotherapy treatment planning is attractive since MRI provides superior soft tissue contrast without ionizing radiation compared with computed tomography (CT). The main difficulty in the introduction of MRI-based treatment planning is that MRI images cannot provide material attenuation coefficients which can be easily converted into electron density after calibration for subsequent dose calculation. This webinar will go over the basic physics of CT and MR, and discuss current methods in using MRI for dose calculation.


About the speaker:  Tonghe Wang, PhD, joined Emory in 2019 as an Assistant Professor of Medical Physics in the Department of Radiation Oncology. Dr. Wang received his BS in Physics from Peking University in China in 2013, and his PhD in Medical Physics from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2017 with research in iterative CT reconstruction. He completed his Medical Physics Residency at Emory University in 2019.
