An essential and comprehensive introduction to brachytherapy in daily practice, covering gynaecological, head and neck, genitourinary, breast, skin, paediatric cancers and more.
You may know your ions from your protons, but do you know the difference between active and passive beam delivery technology? Or the radiobiological, physical or clinical rationale for proton and carbon ion therapy? The course covers all this, as well as reviewing 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.

Learn about the latest developments in stereotactic body radiotherapy and cranial stereotactic radiosurgery. Understand the physical and technical requirements and discuss ways to establish a multi-professional clinical stereotactic programme.
Learn all the fundamental principles of clinical radiobiology that underpin daily decisions about the best way to treat your patients. This vitally important knowledge provides the basis for everything you do in the clinic.
Are you a new radiation therapist (RTT) or more experienced? Do you want to expand your knowledge of radiation therapy treatment design and delivery or just refresh your understanding? This course offers RTTS a comprehensive overview of the discipline, whatever your level of expertise.
Bemused by external beam modelling? Dazed by dose calculation algorithms? This course shines the spotlight on treatment planning systems and dose verification for external beam therapy.
Modena / Bologna, Italy
Find out how to implement or improve the use of IMRT/VMAT and other highly conformal techniques in the clinic, while taking account of well-known clinical and technical issues, as well as the latest developments in this radiotherapy field.
This course is for trainees in radiation oncology and physics. It covers the application of anatomical knowledge in daily clinical practice, the optimal imaging requirements for treatment planning and delivery for a wide variety of tumours, how to determine adequate margins, and how to initiate an IGRT protocol.
The course teaches to design treatment strategies and apply modern principles of target volume definition, fractionation and treatment techniques for radiation therapy in the multimodality treatment of haematological malignancies.
Safety management is deeply embedded in the culture of radiation therapy, in the daily attitude of staff members, within the team and also with the patients. What exactly is the level of risk? How can we measure it? How can we manage patient safety in daily radiotherapy? These are the main topics of this course.
Low dose rate or high dose rate brachytherapy? What’s the difference and how do you do it? Which treatment for prostate cancer is best and in what circumstances? This course covers a range of topics from patient selection, to implant and planning technique, to new developments in the field.
