  • Building Clinical Evidence for Particle Therapy

    Building Clinical Evidence for Particle Therapy
    The workshops require active participation and our goal is that, by the end of the meeting, we will be able to present a number of research project ideas that would benefit from Nordic cooperation. The organising committee have ongoing discussions with Acta Oncologica regarding a special issue of the journal where the outcome of the workshops can be published.

    Workshop themes:

    • Indications for particle therapy – yesterday, today and tomorrow
    • How to identify proton patients in referring centres
    • Patient perspective – how patients can be part of clinical development
    • Common clinical studies – new and ongoing
    • BNCT and protons – rivals or partners?
    • Handling of the biological effectiveness in the clinic
    • Developing techniques for moving targets
