Webinar: THALES - User experience of MRIdian and Halcyon LINACs commissioning and QA

Join the audience for a live webinar at 10 a.m. BST/11 a.m. CET on 13 October 2022.


In this webinar, Thierry Gevaert, coordinator at the UZ Brussel, will share his experience of the THALES 3D MR SCANNER for the acceptance, commissioning, and QA for both MRIdian and Halcyon LINACs. Thierry will highlight the benefits of using the THALES system for their two machines. During the webinar, an overview of future released features will also be presented.

Find out how you can use the THALES 3D SCANNER as a tool for fast and efficient commissioning procedures of bore-type LINACs. Learn how to minimize machine occupancy and benefit from cost-effectiveness.

The presenter

Thierry Gevaert graduated as a medical physicist at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and defended his PhD, “Clinical implementation of frameless radiosurgery”, in 2012.  In 2016, he was nominated professor at the VUB and became the chief of medical physics at the UZ Brussel (UZB). His appointment in the department of radiotherapy involves research, teaching and clinical practice. Thierry is a board member, certified in therapeutic physics and is engaged in mentoring medical physics for graduate students, residents and medical engineers. His research and clinical interests include stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), motion management, the development of high-tech radiation techniques and image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT), all with an emphasis on clinical implementation of translational research. Thierry has made numerous international and national presentations and published more than 50 peer-reviewed papers. Since 2015, he has been an auditor for the Novalis Certification programme.

Tim Everaert graduated as a medical physicist at Ghent University in 2019. In 2020, he started his position as a medical physicist at UZ Brussel. His main focus is based on research and clinical implementation of new techniques in radiotherapy with an emphasis on stereotactic body irradiation (SBRT), motion management, and image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT). He is one of the core team members of online adaptive with MR LINAC.

Thierry Mertens has a PhD in physics and nearly 15 years experience in medical physics and radiotherapy, with the major commitment to develop innovative quality assurance solutions to support the medical end-users with their clinical tasks. As business development manager for LAP since 2016, Thierry has been instrumental in the development of the THALES 3D MR SCANNER and has had the opportunity to work closely with pioneer users of the MRIdian system. He represents the customer voice within the LAP R&D team, ensuring that the end-user needs are fulfilled.
