A Pre-Conference workshop on
"Radiobiology & Radiobiological Modelling in Radiotherapy"
Date: 19th November 2015
Venue: RCC Trivandrum (Thiruvananthapuram)
The course provides an understanding of the radiobiological basis of radiation treatment for cancer and the use of radiobiological models in the evaluation and optimisation of radiotherapy treatment plans. It is aimed at professionals involved in Radiotherapy: Clinical/Radiation Oncologists, Physicists, Therapy Radiographers, Dosimetrists/ Treatment Planners, Researchers and University Teachers.
This one day workshop will cover fundamentals ;
Cellular response to radiation; cell-cycle effects;
The linear-quadratic (LQ) model;
The effects of: oxygen/hypoxia, doserate, radiation quality (LET) incl. protons/light ions;
The principles of fractionation;
Specific considerations in LDR and HDR brachytherapy;
Clonogen proliferation and treatment-gap compensation.
