An invitation to ESTRO 35

January 26, 2016

What is ESTRO 35?

The ESTRO 35 congress will feature new research results in clinical radiation oncology, radiobiology, physics, technology, patient care, radiation therapy and brachytherapy, presented by top doctors, scientists and radiation therapists from all over the world, working together for the benefit of cancer patients.

The congress is expected to attract 5,000 delegates from more than 80 countries.

The congress will cover the entire spectrum of radiotherapy, both external beam and internal beam with brachytherapy, and highlight what is new across fields as diverse as:To find full details about ESTRO 35:
