The teaching course covers all aspects of patient- and machine-specific IMRT QA, with the focus on practical training.

It provides a thorough introduction to PTW detectors and QA systems recommended for standard and rotational  IMRT QA and includes both theory and hands-on training sessions to practise the accurate use of quality control equipment by PTW.

The course is therefore very well suited for clinical scientists and technologists who use PTW detectors for IMRT QA and wish to train in the use of their equipment in clinical practice.
