Organised by IPEM's Radiotherapy Special Interest Group
Traditionally, radiotherapy for superficial tumour sites has used kV X-rays. However, there are now a number of other options such as electrons, brachytherapy (either electronic or isotope –based), and rotational therapies (VMAT/ tomotherapy/TSET). A recent survey by RTSIG (1) found that 73% of centres have a kV unit, but some treated very few patients each year, with the consequence that old kV units may not always be replaced when they reach their end of life.This meeting is suitable for physicists, clinicians, radiographers and dosimetrists involved in the field. It aims to be a platform where centres can present their experiences and results, and share ideas about the treatment of superficial tumours using radiotherapy. Attendees will benefit from enhanced knowledge of the latest trends and developments in treatment techniques, and from networking with participants from other centres.
