Aim of conference:

The course aim is to provide a broad introduction to Radiation Therapy focusing on the integration of 3 key elements, medical imaging, treatment planning and treatment verification, which will be addressed in dedicated lectures of world-renowned experts. These scientific lectures will be complemented by more technical training in basic skills relevant to contemporary research in adaptive radiation therapy, e.g., scripting for treatment planning and data analysis. In addition to the technical and scientific classes, soft fundamental skills for management, development and scientific communication will be covered. In particular, the participants will receive training in communication and publishing, good scientific practice and FAIR data management. This setting will be rounded up by a public lecture given by a true pioneer of particle therapy, and an on-site visit of a Radiation Oncology Department operating a new combined MR-linac device for advanced adaptive therapy in photon therapy.
