Participants from 7 MEFOMP countries attended the “radiation therapy workshop” in Qatar

 The Radiation Oncology Department at the National Center for Cancer Care & Research (NCCCR) Qatar,  in collaboration with the Middle East Federation of Organization of Medical Physics (MEFOMP) and Qatar Medical Physics Society (QaMPS) hosted the “Radiation Therapy Instrumentation Workshop” for Medical Physicists from the Middle East region, from the 22nd – 24th September 2022, in Doha, Qatar.
Highlights of the workshop will include the following topics:   *   An in depth look into the technical workings and theory behind various types of dosimetry equipment and the correct methodology needed to ensure accurate measurements.   *   The correct implementation of, and the theory behind, the patient specific quality assurance process. This will include a practical session during which attendees will have the opportunity to be directly involved.   *   A hands on session of on water tank measurements and data analysis for MV photons.   *   High dose rate Brachytherapy commissioning and Activity measurements.   *   The instrumentations of choice for small fields and FFF beams will also be covered.  This will include an in-depth look at the theory behind using specific types of instruments in such conditions.
The intent was to promote safe Radiotherapy Medical Physics practices in the Middle East by the dissemination of applied up-to-date knowledge and information from experienced local and international physicists based on current international guidelines and protocols. A total of 14 participates from Iraq (2), Jordan (1), Lebanon (2), Oman (2), Palestine (2), Saudi Arabia (3), and Syria (2) have attended this event.
