    Course on the basis of SBRT for physicists (2° edizione)

    Corso Residenziale che si svolgerà a Catania.


    Università di Catania – Piazza Dante 32, Catania

    Programma Scientifico


    Modern radiotherapy is experiencing a paradigm shift characterized by the progressive reduction in the number of fractions. Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), also designed as SABR (stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy), is a radiation therapy approach in which high radiation doses are delivered in few fractions focused on small extracranial tumors with rapid dose fall off outside the target. In particular, SBRT/SABR is becoming elective therapy in several anatomic districts, both for primitive tumors and for metastatic lesions. Technological progress both in imaging and in treatment delivery has favored the adoption of this technique.

    The main aim of this three-day course is to assist medical physicists working in both large and small centers, to learn the proper implementation of effective SBRT treatment practice.
    The educational program is designed to equip participants with the essential skills indispensable for the careful application of SBRT methodologies. Whilst the course is tailored to address the needs of medical physicists, it extends an inclusive invitation to Radiation Oncologists, radiation therapists, and other professionals engaged in the domain of Radiation Therapy, providing them with the opportunity to engage and derive value from this training seek endeavor.
