ESTRO Particle Therapy course 2019 at the UMCG
15 October 2018
We are proud to announce the next edition of the ESTRO Particle Therapy course to be held at the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG), 18 - 22 March 2019. We will welcome more than 100 radiation oncologists, medical physicists and professionals in allied fields, including trainees interested in particle therapy.
For 4.5 days, participants will learn the difference between active and passive beam delivery technology and cover the radiobiological, physical or clinical rationale for proton and carbon ion therapy. Delegates will also review the current evidence for particle therapy, the status of clinical trials and the latest technological developments in this novel and important form of radiation treatment. A guided tour of the local particle therapy facility will be offered to all participants. Knowledge is the first step towards better patient care, and ESTRO offers just that.
