The aim of the TARGIT Academy is to offer the highest quality training and the opportunity to gain a broad academic network. The faculties from a multidisciplinary background who have been involved with this technology from the outset have extensive experience in performing the procedure and providing advice in difficult cases. The focus of the Academy is on quality assurance, hands-on training on a specially designed simulator and interaction with experts to deliver a high standard in clinical education and training.

Our first experiences with the TARGIT Academy showed that the personal atmosphere and the interdisciplinary and international exchange is a great chance to get in touch with other centres, to boost the personal learning curve and to experience all the options with the INTRABEAM® System. The concept with lectures, video and enough time for the hands-on sessions leads to a familiar platform, where discussions and questions are welcome and an exchange of experience between experts takes place.

Targeted intra-operative radiotherapy (TARGIT) using Intrabeam is an elegant approach of partial breast irradiation for an expanding number of solid tumours including breast cancer, rectal cancer, vulval and skin cancer, brain tumours and bone metastasis. It delivers a precise and timely dose of intraoperative radiotherapy accurately to the tumour.

Although the TARGIT technique is straight forward, it requires concerted teamwork and attention to details. Identification of suitable patients who can benefit from this procedure is the extremely important. Adequate training of the multidisciplinary team will ensure the success of this powerful and new technology.
