Motion Management with Voluntary Breath Hold for Proton Pencil Beam Scanning in Management of Lymphoma Patients
DYN'R US Inc. is pleased to invite you to a presentation highlighting motion mitigation in proton therapy.

In this webinar, Dr. Fionnbarr O'Grady will discuss their procedure for treating breath hold patients with proton therapy using the SDX system with special focus on the treatment of lymphoma patients. To ensure robustness they use an advanced planning technique which involves co-optimization of a treatment plan across multiple CT sets at different breath hold levels, combined with regular verification scans throughout treatment. Some unique features of their treatment of lymphoma patients include the use of an immobilization mask in conjunction with the SDX device and the use of a single AP field. They have also made use of an interactive tool to help patients practice the breath hold procedure ahead of the simulation to make the workflow more efficient.

Speaker: Dr. Fionnbarr O'Grady, PhD, MMP, Medical Physicist, Department of Radiation Oncology, Inova Schar Cancer Institute.
