Course Description +
THIS COURSE IS DESIGNED TO BE TAKEN BY AN EXPERIENCED ECLIPSE USER. The course covers the detailed use of Inverse Plan Optimizers within Eclipse for the creation of both IMRT and RapidArc plans. During this course, the student will work through clinically relevant examples such as prostate, head and neck and metastatic spine cases, preparing them to create intensity modulated treatment plans back in the clinic. The course consists of lectures, instructor-led demonstrations, and individual hands-on exercises. This class is an operations only class designed for the personnel responsible of planning. It does not cover system and MLC Configuration, IMRT/RapidArc QA, or the physics and commissioning of any algorithms (see EC201 and EC202).

VARIAN MEDICAL SYSTEMS HAS APPLIED TO CAMPEP FOR THE APPROVAL OF THIS ACTIVITY FOR 27.25 MPCEC HOURS REQUESTED FOR APPROVAL. This course provides training for the individual responsible for commissioning and administration of the Eclipse Treatment Planning System in a clinical, external beam radiation therapy department. The course focuses on the configuration of Eclipse dose calculation algorithms (AAA, AcurosXB, and eMC), including demonstration of model configuration and discussion of beam data requirements. Administrative tasks including: OSP settings (user login, user rights), Radiation oncology settings (Linac definition, CT scanner definition, imaging templates, tolerance tables, isodose templates, dosimetrically equivalent machines) are also included in this course. Eclipse planning skills are practiced throughout. NOTE: This course does not cover the optimization algorithms, IMRT, VMAT or RapidArc (see EC202 Eclipse Commissioning II:IMRT and RapidArc).
