This session will outline the clinical context and workflow for evaluating patients using offline adaptive tools. This evaluation provides insight into how delivered dose differs from planned dose based on treatment positioning and anatomical changes. This session will focus on a dosimetrist’s perspective on replanning after adaptive evaluation as well as a physicist’s process for generating such insights.

Learner Outcomes:

  1. Describe offline monitoring and adaptive radiotherapy and their purpose
  2. Demonstrate the use of Velocity for offline adaptive monitoring and treatment of various sites
  3. Discuss dosimetrist and physicist perspectives on the use of Velocity in a radiotherapy clinic

Educational Level: Intermediate

Presenters:
Megan A. Hyun, PhD, DABR, received her PhD in medical physics from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in 2016 and became board certified in therapeutic medical physics (DABR) in 2019. She is a therapeutic medical physicist and associate professor at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, where she is the department’s medical physics residency program director. Dr. Hyun is a former president of the Missouri River Valley Chapter of AAPM, and serves on a number of AAPM committees related to ethics, education, and the future of medical physics.

Andrew "Drew" Granatowicz, MS, CMD, is a certified medical dosimetrist (CMD) at Nebraska Medicine who received a certificate in medical dosimetry from the University of Texa Health Science Center at San Antonio in 2013 followed by his MS in medical dosimetry from the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse in 2015. He is a clinical instructor and adjunct professor for the medical dosimetry MS program at Grand Valley State University, and has won or placed in multiple national and international treatment planning competitions.

This activity is part of the celebration of National Medical Dosimetrist's Day and is free to AAMD members and non-members. Once you have logged in, it will display as FREE and will not count against the annual CE credit allowance for Members.
