About the NCIS Radiation Oncology Target Delineation Workshop

Target volume delineation is an important step in radiation therapy. Accurate delineation improves the quality of conformal radiation therapy.

 

Through this workshop, we aim to:

 

  • Improve knowledge of cross-sectional anatomy
  • Reduce variability and improve accuracy in determining target volumes and organs at risk
 
*5 CME points will be awarded
