OBJECTIVES

- Learn the usage of the GATE platform for medical physics
- Understand the features of the platform dedicated to the development of detection systems (PET, SPECT, CT and X-rays) and detector response, the management of medical images, the development of clinical and preclinical beams in radiation therapy and dose calculation for different radiation therapy treatments (internal or external)
- Be able to use new tools for data analysis using Python

AUDIENCE

Students, faculty, researchers and engineers involved in medical physics

PRE-REQUIREMENT

Basics in particle physics and medical physics

TRAINING PROGRAMME

Day 1
- Introduction to the platform environment
- Description of a macro file and input files
- Visualization
- How to build the geometry of a camera, examples for PET, SPECT and CT systems
- How to manage medical data (simulation inputs)
- How to configure digitizer and detector response

Day 2
