  • IPEM member Maryam Arktarini on ‘Implementing from first principles gender-dependent radiotherapy’.

A huge range of topics of interest to IPEM members were covered at the Congress, including lightning talks on using Artificial Intelligence for auto contouring, and estimating the carbon footprint and heat recovery potential of linear accelerator cooling systems.
