Aspects specific to proton therapy are also discussed.
The course is structured around two main objectives:
- To transmit the general principles underlying the delineation of volumes in radiotherapy (mainly GTV - CTV - PTV), as well as their specificities according to the localizations. The clinical aspects (both theoretical and practical) will be taught by radiotherapy physicians oncologists, the physical aspects by a hospital physicist.
- Teach students the basic algorithmics of dose calculation engines (including Monte Carlo simulations). This will be exclusively given by a hospital physicist.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.The course is essentially given in lecture format.
Laboratory sessions (computer simulations) are also planned. The student will have to complete two projects for which he / she will have to provide a report each time.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.Laboratories account for 40% of the mark. For each project, the evaluation focuses on the quality of the programming and the report provided.
The final exam counts for 60% of the mark and is essentially theoretical. This consists of a written part and an oral part. The written part is done with open notebook and accounts for 80%. The oral part (closed notebook) accounts for 20%.
