7:30 AM : Introduction to In-Room Imaging System Characteristics - J Chang, Presenting Author
8:00 AM : Treatment Site-Specific Considerations for Clinical IGRT - K Wijesooriya, Presenting Author

TU-A-201-0 (Tuesday, August 2, 2016) 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM Room: 201

Recent years have seen a widespread proliferation of available in-room image guidance systems for radiation therapy target localization with many centers having multiple in-room options. In this session, available imaging systems for in-room IGRT will be reviewed highlighting the main differences in workflow efficiency, targeting accuracy and image quality as it relates to target visualization. Decision-making strategies for integrating these tools into clinical image guidance protocols that are tailored to specific disease sites like H&N, lung, pelvis, and spine SBRT will be discussed.

Learning Objectives
1. Major system characteristics of a wide range of available in-room imaging systems for IGRT.
2. Advantages / disadvantages of different systems for site-specific IGRT considerations.
3. Concepts of targeting accuracy and time efficiency in designing clinical imaging protocols.
