The aim of the organisers is to provide an up-to-date scientific programme covering advanced practices in radiotherapy as well as roles and responsibilities of the RTT’s. We will be focusing on patient care, imaging in planning process, imaging in treatment process, setup and imobilisation, modern techniquess in radiation therapy (IMRT, VMAT, BRT, adaptive RT, motion management, …) and  RTT’s responsibilities and duties.
A wide range of  sessions will be offered, comprising:

* Lectures
* Practical Sessions
* Special Sessions
* Poster Sessions
