Providing PET/CT Imaging Services to Radiation Therapy Departments
PET/CT Imaging plays a major role in radiation therapy planning and patient outcomes. This video presentation has 3 sections. The first section is titled PET/CT Imaging in Radiation Therapy, which touches on the topics of improving physician confidence, advanced workflows which include gating and motion correction, communication and education, growing your service, and protocol optimization. The second speaker discusses the topics of PET department needs, radiation therapy services, workflow and communication. The last speaker discusses the clinical aspects of radiation oncology, which include the behind the scenes impacts for radiation cancer patient’s treatment, PET/CT collaboration improving treatment planning workflow and the PET/CT clinical relevance for radiation patients.

The Value of PET CT in Radiation TherapyPET/CT and Radiation Therapy Planning work very closely together and a lot of what is found in the diagnostic process can affect what happens in therapeutic process. In this pre-recorded session, the speaker describes how PET/CT imaging can improve clinical staging and how it affects radiation planning in lung and head and neck cancers. He also describes advanced radiation therapy planning techniques as well as reviews practical considerations, such as patient positioning, instructions, and immobilization in PET/CT imaging based radiotherapy planning. Lastly, techniques for PET/CT based target delineation will be presented
The Value of PET/CT Imaging for Gynecologic MalignanciesGynecologic cancers can be a challenge when it comes to imaging them. PET/CT has become a useful tool in the fight against this type of cancer. In this video presentation, the speaker will discuss the diagnostic capabilities of PET/CT in gynecologic malignancies. Some of the topics will include basic epidemiology of cervical, endometrial and ovarian carcinoma, the use of PET imaging in the staging and restaging of these cancers, and discuss a unique quantitative approach to the evaluation of malignancy treatment intervention.
The Value of PET/CT Imaging for Head and Neck CancersHead and neck cancers are particularly challenging to diagnose and quantify. PET/CT is a key tool in helping to find and fight these types of carcinomas. In this webinar, the speaker discusses various types of head and neck malignancies and the FDG avidity of the various subtypes of these cancers, the broader challenges of PET/CT in the oncology world and the challenges unique to head and neck PET/CT imaging. The speaker will then discuss the various types of H&N PET/CT acquisition protocols and the benefits of using CT contrast in these images. Lastly, the session will conclude with a review of case studies and a discussion of reimbursement of these scans.
