Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) is a rotational approach to the delivery of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) that can be delivered on a conventional linear accelerator. VMAT has become a widely adopted clinical tool due to the conformal nature of the dose distributions and the efficiency of VMAT delivery. In this session, we will provide an overview of the VMAT delivery technique and will describe recommended steps for starting a VMAT program including VMAT commissioning… CONTINUE READING
