Regular Registration deadline has been extended to April 29!

We are pleased to announce that the 2016 Electronic Patient Imaging (EPI) Conference will be held May 7-10, 2016 at
Washington University in St. Louis! Please join us for this biannual meeting, which was first initiated as the AAPM NoticeElectronic Portal Imaging conference.  Over the last decade, the scope has increased to all in-room imaging and localization systems; and most importantly, the clinical implementations in patient positioning and treatment adaptation.

The EPI2K16 conference at Washington University has been approved by CAMPEP for 6 MPCEC credits.
The EPI2k16 conference has also been approved for 6 MDCB/ARRT credits.

Specific topics will include:

  • Motion management and real time imaging  and adaptation
  • Patient set-up/in-room imaging with kV, ultrasound and MRI
  • Real time treatment verification & in-room treatment imaging and tracking
  • Rationale and common challenges for real time adaptation and correction strategies
  • Particle treatment imaging
  • New detectors and imaging strategies, tracking and biological imaging
  • EPID dosimetry and in-vivo dosimetry
  • Novel techniques for 4d and tomographic image guidance
  • Uncertainties and margins

We will also be including an optional, single day workshop at Washington University to highlight recent technical projects being done at the University.  This is free for all participants, as long as pre-registration occurs.  Topics for this workshop include:

  • Rapid machine commissioning
  • Online adaptive therapy with MRI guidance and gating
  • MD treatment plan and orders/Patient safety board
  • Adaptive gynecological brachytherapy
  • Single room proton therapy
  • proton QA and compensator QA
  • knowledge based planning
  • Intra-treatment fiducial imaging with x-rays

The conference is relevant for anyone with an interest in new developments and use of in-room imaging and localization systems for patient positioning, treatment verification, and treatment adaptation.  Moreover, we make a special invitation for physicians, dosimetrists and therapists who would like to discuss patient implementation and clinical outcomes from these topics.
