Radiotherapy Dosimetry and QA Workshop at ICMP/ALFIM 2019

Update your knowledge and skills in patient plan verification of advanced treatment techniques. Learn more about different plan verification methods and clinically relevant dose evaluation tools. Gain a broader understanding of detector physics and how to choose the best detector for your specific dosimetry needs.

If you are planning to attend the upcoming ICMP/ALFIM congress, come join us for this informative, practical workshop. Don’t forget to stop by our booth as well, where a team of dedicated PTW experts will be ready on-hand to answer your questions, share their knowledge and provide more detailed information on our latest dosimetry and QA solutions.
