2020 TROG Plan Study & Contouring Workshop Results

Categories Plan StudiesPosted on

Introduction

As you probably heard (or had guessed already), the annual in-person TROG meeting was canceled to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 around planet earth. However, TROG did have web-based presentations, so we are happy to announce that the interactive “Population Results” tools have been activated for both the 2020 TROG SBRT Liver Plan Study and the 2020 TROG Contouring Workshop. Please sign in to study the results and to see your performance vs. the anonymous population of your peers.

Also, we are very honored to publish a few of the individual high performers. These are organized into the following sections of this article:

  • Special Recognition: SBRT Liver Plan Study
  • Special Recognition: Contouring Workshop
  • Full List of High Performers: SBRT Liver Plan Study

Finally, note that your Achievement System tracking has been updated with your participation and scoring. The point thresholds for the plan study achievement levels can be found here.
