ESTRO school 2021

In-room MRI-guided RT         
7 October – 9 November 2021| Online
In this interdisciplinary course, we aim to:
– Provide a detailed overview of the clinical rationale and indications of in-room MRI-guided RT;
-Deepen the knowledge of the clinical, physical and technical aspects of MRI-guided RT implementation in clinical practice;
– Share opportunities and challenges of the MRI-guided radiotherapy systems in different clinical scenarios.

Multidisciplinary management of prostate cancer
17 – 20 October 2021 | Online
This 4-day teaching course aims at focusing on the management of localised, locally advanced and metastatic prostate cancer. It emphasises the importance of a multidisciplinary approach and of teamwork, where full information exchange is vital to provide the best up-to-date scientific evidence on which the management of the disease will be based. 

Brachytherapy for prostate cancer
21 – 22 October 2021 | Online
This course includes an overview on epidemiology and treatment options for localised prostate cancer. Patient selection for both HDR and LDR seed implants will be discussed with treatment indications and contra-indications.

Implementation and Practice of Image-guided Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy
2 November – 9 December 2021| Online
Standard rate applies until 21 October 2021
Learn about the basis and latest developments in stereotactic body radiotherapy and cranial stereotactic radiosurgery. Understand the physical and technical requirements and discuss ways to establish a multi-professional clinical stereotactic programme.

Falcon Workshop – Lymphoma
2 – 17 November 2021| Online
The workshop will tackle two cases; Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and an Indolent nodal non-Hodgkin lymphoma case. In both cases issues like staging, recurrence and radiotherapy volumes will be discussed.
Falcon Workshop – Rectal Cancer
8 – 15 November 2021 | Online
The rectal cancer workshop is a very extensive and enjoyable workshop that will help you to understand the caveats of rectal cancer contouring and how to overcome those caveats with anatomical knowledge, surgical series outcomes and ESTRO contouring guidelines.

Falcon Workshop – Prostate Cancer SBRT
9 – 17 November 2021 | Online
Prostate cancer is commonly treated with primary radiation therapy (RT), which results in similar long-term oncological outcomes as radical prostatectomy but with fewer patient-reported side-effects. The question is that will SBRT treatments form the future of prostate cancer radiation therapy.

Paediatric radiotherapy
22 November – 15 December 2021 | Online
Early registration deadline: 3 November
Paediatric radiation oncology covers many different and complex fields in paediatric oncology. The distribution of knowledge on a worldwide level is an important component of the teaching course on paediatric radiation oncology co-organised by PROS (Paediatric Radiation Oncology Society) and ESTRO. The rarity of childhood neoplasms and the complexity of their management due to several factors are putting high demands on the application of radiation therapy. 
Advanced Skills in Modern Radiotherapy
14 -18 November 2021 | Lisbon, Portugal
Early registration deadline: 14 October 2021
Radiation therapy is rapidly evolving, and this has great impact on the role of radiation therapists (RTTs). The target group for this course are RTTs who would like to expand or refresh their understanding of modern radiation therapy treatment design and delivery, and who want the tools to translate this theory into practice. We provide a programme that will serve both new and more experienced RTT. The programme is comprehensive, but targets knowledge and understanding that RTTs specifically need for good clinical practice in modern radiotherapy.

Palliative care and radiotherapy
28 – 30 November 2021 | Online
Early registration deadline: 14 November 2021
A comprehensive overview of the use and effectiveness of palliative radiotherapy will be presented from an evidence-based perspective in a multidisciplinary framework with a strong emphasis on clinical case discussions.

6 and 13 December 2021| Online
Early registration deadline: 22 November 2021
A course aiming at reviewing the present state-of-the-art management of glioma at diagnosis and at recurrence as well as an in-depth focus on the management of brain metastases.

Early registration deadline: 15 December 2021
Late registration deadline: 2 February 2022
Desk registration: as of 3 February 2022
