Shown here are some of the attending physicists participating in the set up of the Blue Phantom2 and LDA-99 Diode Array for an electron scan, which is required TG-106 protocol for annual and beam commissioning reports. Based upon feedback from attendees in all 5 sessions, the hands-on portion of our academy workshops is where it all comes together for practical use, says Tina Baker. This unique experience adds great value, and we are very happy to offer value-added programs.
June 16, 2015 - IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.) announced the successful completion of its fifth IBA Academy on the Road enhanced training workshop. This, and several other training offerings, are key cornerstones of the IBA CAREprogram initiative, which allows close partnering with IBA customers for optimized user satisfaction.
"The IBA sponsored workshop on Advanced Accelerator Beam Commissioning is a "˜must do' for all physicists responsible for beam commissioning. It is informative and entertaining, allowing for peer-to-peer networking and idea-swapping on a level that cannot be obtained elsewhere", said Peter Goyer, MS, DABR, medical physicist of Community Cancer Treatment Center at Geisinger-Lewistown Hospital. "The main speaker is a member of TG-106 and has decades of experience in beam commissioning. The relaxed atmosphere lends itself to learning and makes the hands-on portion truly useful. This workshop is easy to recommend."
The Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP) approved the training to offer 14.25 MPCEC (Medical Physics Continuing Education Credit) upon completion.
