ICEC is excited to announce a partnership with virtual platform Chartrounds in order to increase accessibility of cancer care expertise and expand a growing global network.

Chartrounds.org is an online program that aims to improve the quality of cancer care by connecting radiation oncologists worldwide with highly specialized, disease site-specific experts. Specifically, the Chartrounds web-based conferencing program offers radiation oncologists a scheduled one-hour case review session over the internet with a disease site-specific specialist and their peers. During a session, the radiation oncologists present their patient’s case and treatment plans.  The expert-host reviews each of the submitted cases and offers practical expert advice. New data and approaches are frequently discussed.

Chartrounds Session Archives are also available with keywords and captions for those wanting asynchronous resources or unable to attend live calls.

Over the past 10 years, Chartrounds has expanded to include specialists and members from around the world with platforms specifically dedicated to radiation oncology care in Africa, India, Latin America, and the US as well as a site focused specifically on the practice of brachytherapy. The collaboration supports the existing sites of the US, India, Africa, and Latin America but will continue to expand into medical physics and radiobiology through additional webinars and lecture series.

Upcoming Sessions

Chartrounds US: ROCR and Site Neutral Payments, Constantine Manta

Wednesday, February 21, 2024

4:00 PM EST | GMT/UTC time: 9:00 pm | WAT: 10:00 pm

Dr. Mantz joined GenesisCare in 2000 and serves as its Chief Policy Officer and Chief Physician Executive. He formerly served as Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President of Clinical Operations. As an area expert, he leads GenesisCare’s focus on studying and treating prostate and breast cancer. His dedication to the radiation oncology field is motivated by the belief that it should be “indispensable to almost all cancer care and not as a default when surgical or systemic options are unavailable or as a specialist whose care may be increasingly omitted.”

He is board-certified in Radiation Oncology by the American Board of Radiology. Dr. Mantz received his Bachelor of Science in Biology from the Loyola University of Chicago, IL, and his medical degree from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, Chicago, IL.
