The Art of Immobilization in Proton Therapy
How does immobilization in proton therapy differ from those techniques used in conventional photon therapy? Why is this so important to simulation, patient set-up, and treatment delivery? Can radiation therapists and dosimetrists collaborate to create the perfect positioning device?
In this recorded presentation, Shane Ikner M.B.A., R.T. (R)(MR)(T) discusses immobilization and simulation of proton therapy patients, including those practices and devices which are appropriate for use with MRI integration.
