It will discuss methods to improve the clinical workflow, including registration creation, physician target volume creation, planning support structure creation, and contour QA. 

Real-world examples will be presented demonstrating how different types of automation can be leveraged to reduce uncertainties, improve quality, and streamline the simulation to planning workflow.

Learner Outcomes:  

  1. List the benefit of automating and standardizing planning support structures
  2. Discuss the importance of completing quality assurance procedures prior to finalizing contours for planning 
  3. Explain the benefits of consistency associated with using workflows and automation to pre-process patients
