2D to 3D to IMRT for Radiation Therapists
The transition from 2D to 3D to IMRT for radiation therapists is a crucial point in the development of a high-quality IMRT program. Ensuring safe, proper, and consistent methods for treatment setups, patient positioning, and image verification is essential. It is the first step needed to ensure that treatment contours and plans are being applied correctly to patients as intended.
In light of this challenging transition, Rayos Contra Cancer has developed a 17-session curriculum that spans 5 months to provide longitudinal support for RTTs undergoing such a transition in their radiation therapist program. Each session is approximately 1 hour long, on Zoom, and conducted in the native language of the region.
Each session also provides opportunities for participants to ask questions and to maintain connection with a professional radiation therapist educator through Rayos Contra Cancer’s volunteer network. At the bottom of this page is a detailed outline of the course.
