ASTRO's 59th Annual Meeting

eContouring Learning Lab

These hands-on sessions are designed to provide crucial contouring education and experience. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about, discuss and practice issues such as target delineation, quality assurance and accuracy. Each attendee receives access to the online cases for practice and reference as well as the ability to compare their contours with those of the expert faculty.

The eContouring Learning Lab will only be available to individuals who bring their own personal computer. No ASTRO provided computers will be available on-site. You will need to register and pay an additional fee to attend these sessions. We do not allow attendees to observe the eContouring sessions on-site.

Changes to sessions can be made until August 24, 2017. After August 24, 2017, no changes can be made to sessions online or on-site. Because of the high popularity of these sessions, registration fees are nonrefundable. Please note that events and fees are subject to change.

In addition to receiving CME credits, participants may choose to use their eContouring case(s) as the basis of a PQI project to maintain their certification.

After attending an eContouring session, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify basic anatomy in the cases presented.
  • Evaluate normal tissue dose constraints versus target dose constraints.
  • Demonstrate improvement in contouring skills in the cases presented between pre- and post-activity.
  • Self-assess where additional contouring skills training may be needed.
  • Apply newly acquired contouring skills to his/her own practice.

New for 2017

  • For the first time, we will offer eContouring sessions on Monday!
  • Saturday sessions start mid-day.
  • New Session: eContouring for Pediatrics and SBRT Spine Cancer.
  • New faculty in several courses.
  • eContouring for Gastrointestinal Cancer and eContouring for Lung will also off SA-CME credits for no additional fee.
