FALCON Workshop

Contouring workshops have been organized in the last two editions of the EMUC conference on the topics listed below.

At the 6th EMUC conference in 2014, ESTRO organized a Hands on Training (HOT) Prostate radiotherapy delineation contouring workshop.

At the 7th EMUC conference in 2015, we organised a delineation contouring workshop on IRM-based delineation in prostate cancer treatment with focus on focal therapy. Both workshops were attended by over 20 people.

On the occasion of the 8th EMUC conference taking place from 24-27 November 2016 in Milan, Italy, ESTRO is organizing a delineation contouring workshop on the topic: Salvage intraprostatic relapses.

The workshop will take place on Saturday 26 November from 09:00 – 10:45.
