    • Episode #11 | AAPM MP3.0 Webinar Series on Transformational Medical Physics
      What is the “intelligence” of Artificial Intelligence in radiation therapy?
      AI is expected to engage all aspects of healthcare. How is that engagement is (re)shaping radiation oncology, what value is expected to be gained by that engagement, and what should be the role of a MP3.0 physicist in that process? This webinar highlights effective models of physics-informed AI use and presence in radiation oncology.

Meeting Information

Corgi Phantom:
The Corgi Phantom is designed to evaluate cone beam CT systems. The modular phantom can be configured for different scan sizes, providing tests for multi-axis high resolution, sensitometry, cone beam artifacts, and uniformity. Additionally, the phantom includes holes for measuring dose.

Liver Phantom:
The Liver Phantom combines the advantages of objective test objects and anthropomorphic elements for evaluation of advanced iterative processing. The phantom includes low contrast test objects designed both for ROC tests along with conventional patterns, metal artifact inserts, and beads for MTF calculations.
