2023 Radiation in Medicine Courses and Workshops
The Radiation in Medicine is a biennial event organized by King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center (KFSH&RS) in collaboration with leading national organizations. This scientific meeting consist of various courses and workshops in the field of radiation medicine. The scientific program includes didactic lectures and hands-on workshops in which the latest clinical techniques will be discussed and demonstrated.
This year we have planned eight courses/workshops on the various application of radiation in medicine as follows:
|• CT and MRI of the Abdomen: Diagnostic Approach and Pitfalls. – Sunday, Feb 12 and Monday, Feb 13
The course will be comprehensive of techniques and diagnostic approach of over 1000 cases in various abdominal organs and pitfalls.
Number of Registrants is limited (first come first serve basis)
|• Imaging of the Liver and Pancreas: France Meets Saudi Arabia. – Tuesday, Feb 14 and Wednesday, Feb 15
• Special lecture from Prof. Dr. Dieter Broering, Organ Transplant Center Director
• AI in liver tumors: where we are?
• THAD THID What are those bright spots?
• How imaging shows Liver resilience?
• Cystic liver lesions: EASL CPG update
• Rare Solid Tumors of the Pancreas
• Pancreatobiliary Dual Energy CT
|• Molecular Imaging in the Era of Precision Medicine. –
Sunday, Feb 12 and Monday, Feb 13
The course/workshop will cover the Fundamentals of dosimetry with particular emphasis on radioembolization, targeted alpha particle therapy, and PRRT. On the clinical side, the morning session will focus on an update on the role of theranostics in Prostate Carcinoma. Then the afternoon session will discuss new tools in the molecular imaging of breast carcinoma, including the new FDA-approved Estrogen receptor-targeted imaging.
|• Advances in Radiation Oncology. – Monday, Feb 13
The course will provide a general overview of recent advances in radiation oncology. The topics will cover the technical and clinical aspects of IORT, Electron FLASH RT, brachytherapy, RT planning process automation using scripting and artificial intelligence-based segmentation, MR-based planning, and MR-linac.
TARGET GROUP: The target audience is radiation oncologists, medical physicists, dosimetrists, and radiation therapists.
PREREQUISITE: Basic knowledge of radiation oncology and medical physics.
|• Scripting: Introduction to Radiotherapy Planning Automation. – Tuesday, Feb 14
• Introduction to the Eclipse Scripting API
• Determine where automation fits within clinical workflow
• Automated plan creation in Radiotherapy
|• Safety, Protection, Bio-Dosimetry and Emergency Preparedness. – Thursday, Feb 16
This platform provides the key knowledge of radiation protection, radiobiology, bio-dosimetry, emergency preparedness and laboratory safety. Topics will be presented by recognized experts in various disciplines including diagnostic radiology, radiotherapy, nuclear medicine, research and diagnostic laboratories. Safety standards and radiological emergencies in cases of inadvertent, malicious or nuclear accidents will be discussed as part of national preparedness plans.
