Introduction

In this topic the learner is introduced to physics of radiotherapy, principles of linear accelerator, importance of radiotherapy pre-treatment procedures, treatment planning, daily treatment and side-effects of radiotherapy as well a short overview of breast cancer brachytherapy.

Learning outcomes:
1. Demonstrates critical understanding of the basics of physical principles in relation to Radiotherapy (ionizing radiation, exposure, dose).
2. Concept of breast cancer external beam and radiotherapy brachytherapy treatment planning process (simulation, contouring, volumes, dosimetry) and daily treatment, including common side-effects and their management.
