Available to watch now, RTsafe explores 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.
Eun Young Han is an associate professor of radiation oncology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center at Houston, USA. She works as a clinical medical physicist. She earned her PhD at the University of Florida focusing on Monte Carlo-based internal dosimetry using pediatric and adult anthropometric phantoms. Today, her clinical and research interests are in the areas of end-to-end test and dosimetric comparison of brain stereotactic radiosurgery using Gamma Knife ICON and spine SBRT using MR-guided Linac.
