Special Seminar by Professor Johannes A. Langendijk on 15 Nov

On 15 November, the GSQ is organizing a Special Seminar with Professor Johannes A. Langendijk from the Comprehensive Cancer Center, University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) in the Netherlands. In this seminar, Prof. Langendijk will give a talk relating to a “Model-based Approach” which better enables the most appropriate treatment to be selected between proton therapy or radiation therapy, based on differences in NTCP. In the Netherlands, due to significant efforts made by Prof. Langendijk and his team, proton therapy will start to be covered by insurance beginning from this autumn in cases where a more than 5 percent gap is anticipated in Grade 3 toxicity between proton and radiation therapy. This is a truly unique opportunity to hear discussion on cutting-edge personalized radiation oncology based on real world data. Please come and join us to get to know the innovative research!
