Regional (AFRA) Training Course on Selection, Acceptance, Commissioning and Maintenance of Equipment in Radiotherapy

20-31 October 2014


PROSPECTUS

Purpose

The main objective of this training course is to provide participants with knowledge of selection, acceptance, commissioning and maintenance of radiotherapy dosimetry equipment and radiotherapy treatment units, such as linear accelerators and brachytherapy equipment.

Expected Output

The expected output is that the participants will gain knowledge of selection, acceptance, commissioning and maintenance of radiotherapy dosimetry equipment and radiotherapy treatment units, such as linear accelerators and brachytherapy equipment. The participants will also get copies of all the powerpoint presentations used on the course.
