Where: Your Computer
During this 1-hour webinar, Drew Moghanaki, MD, MPH, and Brian Wang, PhD, present the results of the 2017 Radiosurgery Society SBRT Lung Plan Study held in collaboration with ProKnow Systems. They will review the results of lung plan study, explain the relationship between plan quality vs. modality as well as TPS and delivery methods. Attendees will also learn more about the impact of dose calculation algorithms and recognize variability in contouring normal structures. The webinar will be moderated by Ben J. Slotman, MD, PhD.
