March 17 Meetup: Shaping the Future of Radiation Therapy QA

90-minute event begins at 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET (March 17, 2021)

Opening Talk: Independent QA & the Necessity of Data Access

Jeff Kapatoes, Ph.D., Sun Nuclear Sr. Director, Research & Regulatory

This talk will address the critical role of independent QA in providing unbiased assurance that treatment-related issues are caught.
