This session will start with an introduction to the advantages and potential uncertainties related to the use of deformable image registration for evaluating dose in different clinical scenarios. Then, a multidisciplinary panel will discuss three common and practical clinical scenarios for using deformable image registration within the treatment planning and treatment delivery evaluation process. The radiation oncologist will introduce each of the clinical scenarios, discuss the clinical observation and pose the dose evaluation questions. The radiation physicist will then walk through the clinical process of answering the dose evaluation question, discuss how to assess the uncertainties and finally present the best assessment of the dose evaluation. The radiation oncologist will then conclude with their proposed clinical action in a practical clinical environment and show the final dose evaluation for the clinical case. The session will be interactive with time for questions from the audience response system. The goal of the session is to identify clinical scenarios which may benefit from deformable dose evaluation and describe the proper methodology and quality measures that should be applied when performing these tasks. The session will focus on common clinical scenarios and be addressed by a radiation oncologist-physicist team.
