ESTRO - SEAROG (PAEDIATRIC RADIATION ONCOLOGY)

Event Date:

December 3, 2016

COURSE AIM/RATIONALE

Paediatric radiation oncology covers many different and complex fields in paediatric oncology. The distribution of knowledge on a worldwide level is an important component of the ESTRO-SEAROG teaching course on paediatric radiation oncology. The rarity of childhood neoplasms and the complexity of their management due to several factors are putting high demands on the application of radiation therapy. A comprehensive knowledge of the management of paediatric malignancies, not only addressing radiation oncology treatment technologies, is therefore mandatory for an optimal management of childhood cancer.
