Presented by Linnae Campbell MS, CMD, RT(R)(T)
Northwestern Medicine Proton Center
The proton center has several physicians who all utilize the powerful tool of proton therapy to treat their patients. How do these physicians decide who would benefit from proton therapy? What do they like about using proton therapy for their patients? During the session, each physicians’ specialty will be explored along with a proton therapy case example. Furthermore, each case example will dive into the dosimetric considerations that can influence the patient’s clinical outcomes. In addition, this session will discuss why certain meetings and activities take place at the proton center. Finally, the attendee will understand why those day to day operations facilitate interdepartmental collaboration which leads to safe and effective proton therapy treatments.
