A.C. Burton Day 2016

In 2016, we are thrilled to welcome our guest speaker, Dr. T. Rockwell (Rock) Mackie! Dr. Mackie's career has been focused on planning and delivery of radiation therapy to cancer patients. His group developed the 3‑D treatment planning system that became the Philips Pinnacle treatment planning system, the most widely used radiation therapy treatment planning system in the world. His group was also the developer of tomotherapy, which is the marriage of a linac and a CT scanner. More recently, Rock has been active in development of a compact proton therapy machine for treating cancer.

Our 2016 event will be held on April 7, 2016, in Auditorium A, University Hospital. Beginning at 10:30am we will have a meet and greet, with coffee and refreshments, outside the auditorium, and the official talks will begin at 11:00.

Please see the poster for details on the itinerary and keynote session.
