By Christina Ruiz, July 17, 2020

You are invited to join us for a FREE webinar hosted by WePassed!

Title: AAPM TG-292: Electronic Brachytherapy Dosimetry

Speaker: Wesley Culberson, Ph. D. 

Date/Time: Wednesday, August 26th at 12:00 pm EDT


About the Webinar:

The purpose of this webinar is to discuss the general approaches being implemented for electronic brachytherapy dosimetry, as well as the details of the most recent report from AAPM TG292 published in the Journal of Medical Physics. American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) Task Group 292 on electronic brachytherapy (eBt) dosimetry focuses on the interstitial, intraluminary, and intracavitary applications of eBt. With the low energy range of eBT and the different manufacturer calibration procedures, eBt dosimetry is a challenging area of medical physics dosimetry these days. The listeners of this webinar will learn the basic and advanced methods of eBT dosimetry as well as some of the cutting-edge research taking place at this time.
