Ambulantes Operationszentrum im Ullsteinhaus GmbH, Berlin, Germany

Brachytherapy Course - Permanent Prostate Seed Implants

The aim of the two day course is to provide an adequate combination of live demonstrations of the prostate implantation technique, " hands on training" using implant needles and prostate models, pre and post planning computer dosimetry, proper seed handling and theoretical background concerning patient selection, side effects and complications.

 

Requires a Java Enabled Browser.

 

The course is designed for Radiotherapists/Radiation Oncologists, Urologists, Physicists and OR Nurses.

 

The two day course comprises:

Friday

Morning and afternoon sessions demonstrating live permanent seed prostate implantation procedures using radioactive implants. On-line computer dosimetry will be performed, if necessary, prior to each individual demonstration. The actual procedure is monitored and projected in the lecture theatre, with ultrasound as well as with a flouroscopic C-arm X-Ray.

Computer dosimetry planning of the operated patients is discussed in a step by step fashion during the afternoon session in order to acquaint the participants with the different computer dosimetry programs presently available on the market.

Saturday

Morning sessions deal with brachytherapy background and review, physics and dosimetry and a step by step report of the permanent seed implant procedure as well as possible complications connected with the procedure. "Hands on" equipment familiarity, implant needle loading and proper handling of the actual radioactive implants as well as performing ultrasound guided seed implants on a prostate model take place in the afternoon.

 

COURSE DATES :

Please enquire

 

These courses are held in Berlin, Germany in English, but other languages can be used for detailed explanations. Spanish, Italian, French and German languages are commonly used as support languages. Courses can also be held in Spanish.

The Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford, UK

Ultrasound Guided Transperineal Brachytherapy for Early Stage Prostate Cancer

 

This course is for Radiation Oncologists, Urologists, Medical Physicists, Dosimetrists and Theatre personnel interested in permanent and temporary seed implantation. The course includes details on setting up an implant program to patient selection, the techniques of seed implant and dosimetry.

 

The course is the first in the UK to allow delegates both hands on practical experience in needle loading and seed implantation on prostate models under ultrasound control.

 

The faculty of Radiation Oncologists, Urologists and Physicists is dedicated to teaching your team high quality implantation.In addition to the didactic sessions, live demonstrations of dose planning and implantation will be shown in the operating room and by close circuit video observation.

 

Physicists and dosimetrists will have a special breakout session on dosimetry and treatment planning. The registration fee also includes a detailed manual which will provide additional information for each member of the team.

 

Upon completion of the course, participants will be familiar with the results of transperineal permanent and temporary implantation, patient selection, dosimetry philosophy and basic physics, dosimetry planning, permanent and temporary implant technique, complications and their management and practical aspects of setting up an implant program.
