Room: Osceola Ballroom C

There is growing popularity in the use of Surface Guided Radiation Therapy (SGRT) for ensuring the accuracy and precision of patient positioning. Physicists implementing SGRT in their clinic need guidance for commissioning the system, for designing effective on-going QA procedures and for appropriate clinical use.

This session will describe the commissioning, ongoing QA, current clinical use of SGRT and look towards the future of this rapidly expanding technology.

Speakers will describe their experience commissioning and using SGRT for a wide variety of disease sites and including an FMEA analysis to examine potential failure modes for SGRT for deep inspiration breath hold (DIBH) patients. They will give an overview and an update on Task Group 302.

Learning Objectives:
1. Provide physicists with commissioning and QA guidance for SGRT (based on TG302)
2. Review of the clinical implementation for various treatment sites
3. Discuss potential future clinical applications of surface imaging
