Civco Motion Management Symposium Explores Micro, Macro Aspects

Civco Motion Management Symposium Explores Micro, Macro Aspects

September 26, 2011 — Civco Medical Solutions is hosting a motion management symposium in conjunction with the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO) 2011 conference. The symposium, "The Future of Motion Management from Micro to Macro," will be held Monday, Oct. 3, at the Gansevoort Hotel in Miami Beach.

Civco invites attendees to explore the evolution of motion management from a micro to macro perspective. Leading clinicians will begin on the micro (patient-specific) level through discussions involving stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) immobilization and submillimeter robotic patient positioning. Then, macro (facility-wide) motion management will be discussed featuring radio frequency identification (RFID) tracking of patients & equipment and its impact on departmental workflow. Pre-registration is required.

Four featured presentations will be given. Geoffrey Dalbow, Civco chief technology officer, will outline the concepts of micro and macro motion management and provide introductions for the clinical leaders to follow.

  • Clinical Experience of the Body Pro-Lok for SBRT Patient Immobilization – Alonso Gutierrez, Ph.D., assistant professor of radiation oncology, School of Medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio (UTHSCSA)
  • Clinical Impact of kV-CBCT Imaging Guided 6-D Robotic Couch in Stereotactic Radiosurgery Program – Tim Williams, M.D., medical director, Lynn Cancer Institute, Boca Raton Regional Hospital and Charles Shang, director of medical physics, Lynn Cancer Center, Boca Raton Regional Hospital
  • Quality Improvement & the Future of RFID and UCSD – Todd Pawlicki, director of medical physics, department of radiation oncology, Moores Cancer Center

Civco personnel will be available throughout the event for product-specific questions. Products discussed during presentations include Body Pro-Lok for SBRT, Protura Robotic Patient Positioning System and RFSuite RFID Tracking and Verification System.
