The Targeted Intraoperative Radiotherapy Skills Labs 

The conference will conclude with two dedicated Skills Lab (Breast and Brain IORT) for trainees chaired by breast surgical oncologist, Sheldon Feldman, MD, neurosurgical oncologist, Christopher Cifarelli, MD and medical physicist, Anil Sethi, PhD. The Labs will consist of a lecture series followed by two hours of hands-on training.

Skills Labs Learning objectives are as follows:

  • Review patient selection criteria for intraoperative radiotherapy
  • Discuss integration of intraoperative radiotherapy with oncoplastic surgery (for breast Skills Lab)
  • Participate in a hand-on lab to simulate wound preparation and intraoperative radiotherapy administration

Residents/Fellows will then participate in two hours of hands on training. Several leading technology companies will display their latest state-of-the-art technologies in a simulated Operating Room where participants will receive didactic and hands-on use of these breast and brain surgical devices.
