PTCOG is an annual conference that begins with the Educational Session and will be followed by the Scientific Meeting each year. The Educational Session will provide a comprehensive overview of the clinical, physical, technological, and radiobiological fundamentals of particle beam therapy with an emphasis on the latest advances in our field. During the Scientific Meeting we will focus on advances in IMPT, robustness in treatment planning, quantifying and managing the uncertainty in range and tumor motion, incorporating 3-D imaging with daily delivery, and various other topics. The clinical applications will center on the traditionally recognized clinical indications but more importantly on cancers of the breast, lung, head and neck, and gastrointestinal tract. Hypofractionation and combined modality approaches will be an important focus. We anticipate updates on outcomes of completed as well as ongoing clinical trials and a robust discussion around future protocols, grant opportunities, and multi-institutional collaborative efforts, as well as recognizing the value of large multi-center registry data.

This app contains the course agenda, faculty listing and disclosures, course materials/handouts, exhibitor listing, CME information, event records and much more. The app will take the place of a printed syllabus at the PTCOG conference.
