A practical workshop on radiotherapy techniques for irradiating the internal mammary chain

This one-day programme will focus on implementation of advanced radiotherapy techniques for treating node positive breast cancer, with a particular focus on arc therapy techniques for treating the internal mammary chain (IMC). The day will include interactive contouring training with the aid of an expert panel, detailed case-based discussions around benefits and risks of IMC RT, and practical case-based lectures with Q&A sessions on implementing arc therapy and breath-hold techniques in the clinic in the adjuvant, oligometastatic and re-treatment settings.
