18 Feb 2020 - 20 Feb 2020
Course Description +
The acquisition of reliable beam data is essential to the process of commissioning a radiotherapy system. Regardless of the treatment planning software used, the ability to acquire accurate beam data is fundamental. This course is designed for the clinical physicist looking to gain knowledge and experience scanning linear accelerator beams. Photon beams are emphasized, including special considerations when working with flattening filter free (FFF) beams and small fields. The course also covers detector (ion chamber) selection and set up, quality assurance considerations, and evaluating beam data, i.e. the characteristics of a good profile and how to spot it in the data when a machine is not properly tuned. The course incorporates hands-on time in an accelerator lab, with practice acquiring high quality PDD, profiles, and point measurements along with TMR, DLG, and small field measurements in a water tank.

Course Description +
Unleash the power that exists within Eclipse by attending the Eclipse™ Scripting API Basics course. The Eclipse Scripting API Basics course aims to provide Eclipse users with the knowledge and tools to build ESAPI applications for research and clinical use. The goal of this four-day course is to introduce ESAPI, the Eclipse Script Wizard, the basics of C# and Visual Studio, and programming concepts needed to successfully develop ESAPI applications. Registration for the course will make available online content that will review the language syntax of C# and the building of Console Applications and User Interface design with Windows forms and Windows Presentation Foundation in Visual Studio. During the course, attendees will create custom applications that can be executed from within Eclipse or as stand-alone applications, as well as develop Visual Scripting applications. Open-source scripts will be downloaded and modified for personal use. An ESAPI expert guest speaker will also discuss the creation, validation, and implementation of clinical applications.
