Practical Session on Patient Positioning and Immobilization

Advances in the commercial technology for radiation therapy simulation, planning, and treatment delivery have had a substantial impact on the way patients are positioned and immobilized for treatment.  Many new techniques such as SRT, SBRT, SRS, and IGRT continue to evolve, and it is important for users to fully understand the available patient set-up techniques  and range of strategies employed to provide the most precise and repeatable positioning. In this session we present (1) an overview from various manufacturers on the current positioning and immobilization techniques and technology available, (2) Discuss challenges and issues with specific techniques, and (3) acquire practical knowledge of the evolving solutions as presented by the various manufacturers and clinicians.
