E2E test for spine stereotactic radiosurgery on MR-Linac using RTsafe Spine phantom

07 Apr 2021 Sponsored by RTsafe

Join the audience for a live webinar at 3 p.m. BST/5 p.m. EEST on 21 May 2021 exploring the results of end-to-end dose measurements for spine stereotactic radiosurgery quality assurance test in both MR-Linac and a conventional linac

This webinar will share the results of end-to-end dose measurements for spine stereotactic radiosurgery quality assurance test in both MR-Linac and a conventional linac. Treatment plans were generated for lumbar and thoracic spines. Target and spinal cord doses were measured directly with two ion chambers inserted into the RTsafe Spine phantom. The RTsafe anthropomorphic Spine phantom was used to examine the feasibility of spine SBRT with the MRL.
