Physics Workshop on Treatment Verification
We are excited to announce that the 2016 World Congress of Brachytherapy will be preceded by a Brachytherapy Physics Day. Physicists from all over the world will gather to discuss the topic of Treatment Verification in brachytherapy, with presentations from experts on a range of topics including in-vivo dosimetry, image-based verification and real-time tracking. Current and emerging technologies will be discussed, with an attention to clinical implementation and integration into clinical workflows. Mark your calendars for this exciting opportunity to join your colleagues in beautiful San Francisco, CA. (Separate registration is required)
