Welcome to The Christie Proton e-School.

Join us for an exciting two days of virtual learning as the school delivers ‘Treatment verification workshop for proton therapy treatment’ from 4th February to 5th February 2022.

The Christie Proton School is led and run by experts in proton therapy and education from the Christie Proton Clinical Service, the University of Manchester and the School of Oncology. The course content is based on the specialist knowledge and experience of those who have developed the proton service and are involved in the delivery of proton therapy to patients here in Manchester.

The course will provide an in-depth perspective in proton therapy and involve live presentations, interactive sessions and virtual networking.

What can you expect to learn?

This is a practical workshop specifically for therapy radiographers and other professionals who are interested in treatment verification. This six-hour session will include: an overview of 2DkV imaging, cone beam CT imaging, the offline and online image review process, including when to instigate corrections, and clinical case examples of the issues encountered on-treatment. The clinical case sessions will be done in small groups to allow maximal opportunities for learning and discussion.
