Experts meet to drive improvements in cancer treatment in Europe

16 Mar 12

Today clinicians from around the world will gather at the 4th Brainlab European Radiotherapy User Meeting to share their best practice and experiences in treating difficult-to-treat cancers using advanced radiotherapy.



The two-day meeting held at the Global Center of Stereotactic Radiotherapy at Rigs Hospitalet, Copenhagen University Hospital, Denmark, aims to discuss the best approaches for future radiation treatment to achieve the best outcomes for patients. Over 170 clinicians from nearly 90 different international cancer centres will hear 33 different advanced approaches for treating cancers across the body using modern radiation therapy techniques.



Highlights of the meeting will be keynote presentations on new protocols for the treatment of lung, prostate and brain cancers with radiosurgery. These protocols will show that radiosurgery can offer faster treatment times, shorter periods of treatment and in turn allows greater numbers of patients to be treated using the same advanced radiotherapy systems.
